Sherman, Joel D.; Gregory, Barbra; Poirier, Jeffrey M.
This report is an annual collection of school district financial data. Specifically, this report presents analyses of school district revenues from the 1997-98 school year. The report is designed to address the following questions about the financing of public elementary and secondary education at the state and district levels: How much money per pupil is raised for elementary and secondary education from federal, state, and local sources? What is the level of variation in revenues per pupil across school districts nationally and in each state? How do district demographic and economic characteristics relate to revenues per pupil nationally and in each state? How strong are the relationships? What proportion of funds for elementary and secondary education comes from federal, state, and local sources, nationally and in each state? How do districts with different demographic and economic characteristics differ in the proportion of funds they receive for education from various sources? Analyses of school district revenues are presented for the nation and each state. The major findings of the report are presented using cost-adjusted revenues. Findings based on actual revenues are included in the body of the report, with both actual dollars and cost-adjusted dollars reported in the text. Appended are: Supplementary Tables; and Technical Notes on: Data Sources, Construction of Key Revenue Categories, Selection of Observations, and Data Modifications and Imputation Procedures. A glossary is also included. (Contains 91 tables and 30 figures.) (Author/WFA)
