This document contains the proceedings of presentations made by the Fiscal Issues, Policy and Education Finance Special Interest Group of the American Education Research Association (AERA). Ten articles focus on equitable funding systems for K-12 education and examine school financing in the following states: Florida, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, California, Washington, and Michigan. Findings show that there is wide variance among states' responses to the challenges of increasing fiscal stress and changing student demographics.

Westbrook); (3) "The State of New York School Finance: A Post Reform Perspective" (Faith E. Crampton); (4) "State of the State: Pennsylvania" (Maureen W.
