State Funding of Urban Education Under the Modern School Finance Reform Movement.
Bothwell, Robert O.; And Others
In Serrano v. Priest, the California Supreme Court in 1971 initiated a modern era of elementary and secondary school finance reform. This paper first examines the present problems of urban school finance to ascertain why urban adjustments are necessary today in the new school finance formulas. All urban school finance adjustments in use at the time of Serrano and since Serrano are described and policy problems related to these adjustments are discussed. The final section analyzes school finance reform in ten states concerning fiscal impact on key urban school districts. Tables and text demonstrate that urban school districts have had state aid redistributed in their favor as often as it has been shifted the other way. (Author/MLF)
