Study Plan for the Congressionally Mandated Study of School Finance. (Studies Authorized by Section 1203 of the Education Amendments of 1978.)
Department of Education, Washington, DC.
The study plan discussed here was prepared to fulfill a requirement in the Education Amendments of 1978 for transmission to Congress of a plan for studies dealing with the financing of elementary and secondary education. The plan is organized into three chapters. Chapter 1 briefly describes the contents of the study plan and provides a full description of studies that form the context of current concerns in school finance. These studies recognize the increasing interdependence of education finance with economic issues, social conditions, and broader areas of public policy for all governmental units. Also included in this chapter are studies that provide conceptual work on the issues of "adequacy" and "equity," which are central to federal, state, and local activities in school finance. Chapter 2 describes the majority of the analytical work, organized around the four major policy areas. The culmination of the study plan is in Chapter 3, which focuses on optional strategies and designs for the federal role in education finance. An extensive appendix provides more indepth information on the study plan, including its development and implementation. (Author)
