School Finance 2006-07: State Leaders Settle Up with Education
Edwards, Brian; Perry, Mary
EdSource's annual public education budget report, "School Finance 2006-07: State Leaders Settle Up with Education," offers a comprehensive look at this year's funding decisions for schools, recent budget history, and how the state's schools are funded. In contrast with last year's budget battles, the process for 2006-07 notably lacked conflict. High state revenues combined with election-year political incentives to produce a budget that satisfied most parties--and did so on time. Specifics of the report include a summary of the revenues for schools in 2006-07; a rundown on funding for a wealth of new programs from preschool to counseling; and an explanation of how requirements of Proposition 98 have interacted with volatile state funding levels to complicate funding decisions in recent years. The report is rich with charts and tables, including a comprehensive list of state and federal categorical programs and amounts. (Contains 6 figures.)
