Educational Challenges.
Chisholm, Shirley
There are three very important factors that contribute substantially to urban fiscal problems in providing educational services. First, at the same time that the tax base for the cities' services is being eroded, the cities' residents are in need of and demanding greater expenditures for health services, welfare, sanitation, transportation, public housing, and all the other services required by an urban population. As a result, a smaller proportion of the city budget is available for public education than is available for educating the children in wealthier communities. Second, city education budget items are more costly than such items are elsewhere. Third, the socioeconomic characteristics of the urban school population require greater expenditure than other school populations. The combination of these factors results in less education per dollar in the city than in suburban or rural areas. (Author/IRT)
