Measuring and Monitoring Equity, Adequacy and Efficiency in the K-12 School Districts in Illinois: A Five-Year Agenda. MacArthur/Spencer Project.
Hickrod, G. Alan Karnes-Wallis; Ward, James Gordon
Discussed in this report is the MacArthur/Spencer Special Project on Educational Finance conducted on the campuses of the Illinois State University. This 5-year research effort is designed to conduct research into equity, adequacy, and efficiency aspects of educational finance in Illinois. When possible, conclusions and generalizations are applicable to other states, but the primary responsibility is to provide empirical research for policy makers within Illinois. Information from the project is sent to all 50 states and several foreign countries, and a special distribution is made to members of the Illinois General Assembly. The project has produced a series of eight monographs, and many more are in progress. It has utilized the services of 14 faculty, staff, graduate students, and consultants. Fifteen doctoral dissertations have arisen tangentially from the major research thrust. Some public service activities have taken place in the pursuit of the goals of the project. The following are appended: abstracts of the MacArthur/Spencer Series on Illinois Educational Finance; a research agenda; a list of doctoral dissertations; a list of the members of the advisory committee; minutes of an advisory committee meeting; and information on studies under subcontract or in progress.
