Toward a Common Goal.
Ottina, John R.
In this paper, the author examines the Federal role in the financing of schools given the facts of rising costs, pressure for greater equalization, court rulings that clearly place basic responsibility for financing of public education in the hands of the State, and given severe limitations on Federal funds. Matters considered include Federal short-term equalization aid; Federal impact aid funds and the adjustment of State aid payments to local districts; receipt of Federal funds by school districts because the parents of some pupils work for the Federal Government; reform of the ESEA, Title I, fund allocation formula to target the disadvantaged more precisely and to concentrate more directly on schools with the greatest proportion of students in need; the consolidation of many narrow-purpose categorical authorities into broader flexibility in meeting their educational needs; and forward funding.
