Cases related to school finance, in which decisions were handed down in 1982, are reviewed in this chapter. It is observed that the constitutionality of existing state school finance programs was upheld in New York, Colorado, and Georgia, and that litigation was prevalent in the areas of taxation for schools and uses of school revenue. Issues addressed under the heading of Sources and Allocation of Public School Funds include state school finance programs, federal funds for education, and school fees. Discussed under the heading of School Tax Issues are cases involving power to tax, relationship of school districts to other government units, and uses of revenue. (MJL)
