A Study of State of Iowa Appropriations with an Emphasis upon Expenditures for Education.
Chambers, George A.; And Others
This study is the first of five studies assembled by the budget committee of the Iowa general assembly to provide information regarding the financing of education by state government. It analyzes general appropriations in the state of Iowa between 1960-76 and compares Iowa's appropriations with those of other states. The results indicate increased state support for education in Iowa during the stated period, especially to public school districts. The document states that the most disquieting aspect of this study is that Iowa's support for postsecondary education, considering increased enrollments and declining purchasing power, has declined both in constant dollar expenditures per student and in national ranking. However, for the period 1960-76, Iowa can be proud of increasing state financial support to K-12 school districts. (Author/LD)
