Smarter Budgets, Smarter Schools: How to Survive and Thrive in Tight Times
Levenson, Nathan
Harvard Education Press
Armed with real-world examples and out-of-the-box ideas, Levenson challenges conventional thinking about school budgeting and offers a compelling way forward for school superintendents, central office leaders, building principals, and school board members. Virtually every school district in the nation is experiencing an extended period of financial constraints. Shrinking tax revenue due to the Great Recession, decreasing federal stimulus funds, rising health care and pension costs, and fast-growing high-need student populations will continue to test superintendents and school boards as they seek to prepare students for a globally competitive environment with fewer resources.
