Current Components of New York State's Educational Finance System: A Review.
New York State Div. of the Budget, Albany. Education Study Unit.
The purpose of this report by a panel of school finance specialists appointed by the governor to guide a budget study in New York State is to summarize studies on the existing apportionment system of public school aid and to suggest short-term steps for improving the equity of the present system. Parts 1 and 2 discuss the present operating aid formula and other major state aid programs. Part 3 examines two programs for which aid is currently available to only selected New York State school districts: early education and the education of the gifted and talented. Part 4 deals with reorganization of school districts and other aspects of the educational finance system. Recommendations for changes that could make the current operating aid formula more equitable are described at the end of each chapter. Tables and graphs are provided throughout the document.
