The Impact of Federal Funding on Small School Districts. Research Bulletin No. 20.
Kaiser, Dale E.; O'Neil, Harold R.
This booklet examines the impact of federal funding on small school districts in the United States and is intended to provide information that will be useful to local school districts as well as to the state and federal agencies responsible for allocating federal funds. Much of the data for the study was gathered through a survey questionnaire that was distributed to all public school districts with enrollments of 5,000 or less that also hold membership in the Association of School Business Officials. Chapter 1 briefly discusses the background, purpose, and design of the study; chapter 2 describes in detail the research design and methodology; chapter 3 reviews and examines relevant literature on the development and role of federal aid to education; chapter 4 presents and interprets findings of the study; and chapter 5 presents the authors' conclusions and recommendations based on review of the literature and analysis of reponses to the survey questionnaire.
