Financing Public Schools in Illinois: A Decade of Discontent.
Ward, James Gordon
Educational Considerations, v25 n1 p25-28 Fall 1999
The decade from 1987 to 1997 saw two unsuccessful attempts to reform Illinois's school finance system from a constitutional perspective. In 1997, prospective reforms will probably be limited by partisanship, revenues and anti-tax sentiment, regional antipathies, fragmentation, and pressures for property tax relief. (MLH)
