Inequality in California School Finance: Dimensions, Sources, Remedies.
Alexander, Arthur J.
This report addresses a variety of questions about inequalities in school finance, and answers them by applying a broad range of statistical techniques to a comprehensive set of data on California school districts. Census data by school district was drawn from the 1970 U.S. Census, while information on school district finance for 1971-72 was obtained from official state sources. Although the report describes research relating almost solely to public school finance in California, it can also serve as a model for the analysis of school finance in other states. A basic question/answer format is used throughout the report, and extensive use is made of illustrative graphs and data tables. In addition to a general introduction, the report contains four major sections dealing with dimensions of inequality, distribution of inequality, sources of inequality, and remedies for inequality.
