Trends in Real Public Elementary and Secondary School Revenues 1981-82 to 1985-86. Analysis Report.
Orlund, Martin E.
This report is an analysis of statistical data covering public education revenues between school years 1981-82 and 1985-86. The data comes from the Common Core of Data (CCD) survey, an annual collection of information on public elementary and secondary schools derived from the administrative and fiscal records of the state departments of education. This analysis provides basic descriptive data documenting: (1) the degree to which financial commitments to public elementary and secondary education have changed over this period, particularly since the publication of "A Nation at Risk" in April 1983; (2) the contribution of revenues from different governmental levels to such change; and (3) the consistency of change patterns both among the states and over several consecutive years.
