The Demographic, Fiscal, and Political Environment of Public School Finance in the 1980's. Policy Paper No. 80-C1.
Kirst, Michael W.; Garms, Walter I.
This paper explores the future of school finance through an examination of the size and distribution of future populations, the future of the economy and its effect on money available for schools, and the political context within which decisions will be made. It projects this knowledge over the decade of the 1980s and makes future predictions about the financial outlook for education. Some of the specific topics explored include enrollment projections, the impact of demographic changes, the impending shortage of quality teachers, societal forces competing with education for funds, and political strategies to increase expenditures for education.
