Adequacy Rather than Equity: A New Solution or a Stalking Horse?
Hess, G. Alfred, Jr.
Educational Policy, v8 n4 p544-67 Dec 1994
Addresses Clune's school finance adequacy model from a practitioner's perspective, outlining six concerns: adequacy as a new structure or a federal categorical program; adequacy's legal basis; the chances of increasing federal Chapter 1 spending from $6.3 billion to $25 billion; program funding versus compensation focus; adequacy model control issues; and policy jurisdiction interactions. Praises the model's potential for linking adequate resources with program accountability. (MLH)
