The First Year Impact of Wisconsin School Finance Legislation, 1973, on the Equality of Educational Expenditures in Twenty-Two Metropolitan Milwaukee School Districts.
Ripley, Thomas Charles
The change in the equality of per-pupil expenditures of 22 metropolitan Milwaukee school districts before and after the implementation of the Wisconsin new power equalization formula for school finance is investigated in this study. The equality of per-pupil expenditures for line items that compose the current operating expenses of a school district is computed using the traditional standard deviation statistic and the Gini coefficient. The values of these statistics are compared for the two years that straddle the implementation of power equalization, 1972-73 and 1973-74. The results demonstrate that the equality of per-pupil expenditures increased for most of the line items and for total current operating expenses after the implementation of district power equalization. An extensive bibliography is included. (Author)
