Education Finance and Organization: Research Perspectives for the Future. Program on Educational Policy and Organization.
Benson, Charles S., Comp.; And Others
The Stanford-Berkeley Seminar on School Finance and Organization was convened to reexamine the problems that underlay the educational finance reform movement, to consider the new problems caused by that movement, and to recommend research topics and study areas that could help alleviate those problems in years to come. The eight papers discussed and revised during the five months of the seminar and presented in full in this document (1) assess the role of the courts in the development of the educational finance reform movement; (2) consider the relationship between equity and fiscal neutrality in the light of state actions; (3) argue that the business model for understanding school organization is inadequate and its application hazardous; (4) point out the dangers in assuming larger schools and districts are more efficient; (5) examine the implications of changing fertility rates; (6) build on the literature in economics of time, time budget analysis, and child pyschology to explore how a child's use of time outside school affects academic performance; (7) reject the human capital model for understanding the relationship between schooling and work; and (8) urge adoption of "recurrent education" as a technique for keeping the society economically and educationally vital.
