Futures in School Finance: Working Toward a Common Goal. Proceedings of the National Conference on School Finance (17th, Orlando, Florida, March 17-19, 1974).
Jordan, K. Forbis, Ed.; Alexander, Kern, Ed.
The Nation Conference on School Finance, originated by the National Education Association in 1957, has been sponsored since 1972 by the National Educational Finance Project, the Institute for Educational Finance of the University of Florida, and Phi Delta Kappa. A continuing goal of the conference has been to provide a forum for the expression of different points of view and the dissemination of new information and practices in educational finance, thereby contributing to a better understanding of the multiple problems involved in developing, maintaining, and administering school finance programs. The proceedings are reflected in 19 papers on a wide range of educational finance topics, including federal aid, equal educational opportunity, determinants of local taxes, financing special education, program budgeting, priorities in allocation of state funds, revenue potentials, equalization of state funds, and the future of educational finance.
