Rethinking Equity--There Are Alternatives.
Picus, Lawrence O.
School Business Affairs, v64 n4 p3-8 Apr 1998
Defines "equity" in terms of three concepts (horizontal equity, vertical equity, and fiscal neutrality), summarizes school finance litigation history, and presents alternative distribution formats to improve student achievement. Enhancing equity and efficiency requires reallocation of existing resources, incentives for improved performance, a more market-based budgeting environment, and use of "venture capital" (revolving funds) for startup costs.
