School Finance as a Moral Dilemma
Pijanowski, John C.
eJEP: eJournal of Education Policy, Fall 2017
Alternative approaches to raising funds for public schools have long been critiqued for their approach to providing an equitable and adequate distribution of educational goods. Inherent in these core concepts of fairness are ethical questions that drive how policy and practice evolve to generate revenue for the education of children. This paper explores the ethical issues within three broad categories that are common in the origination of public school revenue: Taxpayer equity, sin money, and the use of children to generate revenue.
