Funding Equity in Oklahoma: The Extremes
Hancock, Kenneth; Schwab, Steve
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Rocky Mountain Educational Research Association (40th)
This report attempts to answer the question of whether or not there are school districts that are perennial to the extremes in the funding of Oklahoma Schools from SY-99 to SY-08. Using data collected from these years, calculations of fiscal neutrality were made and a rank ordering of districts was performed and then collated over the ten year period. The top and bottom 10% of the districts were examined, and it was determined that in percentages of the total number of schools and school children, there was in fact a few small districts that were perennial to the top 10% and fewer still that were perennial to the bottom 10%. Data relating to "Perennial Top, Bottom, or Either School Districts in Funding" is provided in an attachment. (Contains 5 charts and 6 graphs.)
