Defined as the provision of adequate resources to enable all children to meet a state's proficiency standards, school finance adequacy is being addressed in some way in almost every state. Because states are under increasing pressure to define what constitutes an adequate education and determine how to fund it, this issue of "Insights" examines the approaches that can be used to determine the cost of an adequate education and discusses recent adequacy studies.
