Theobald, Neil D.; Bull, Barry; Vesper, Nick
Educational Considerations, v25 n1 p29-33 Fall 1999
Indiana's school funding formula was developed in response to a lawsuit challenging the state's educational system's constitutionality. A reward-for-effort formula sets each school corporation's per-pupil noncategorical revenue, general fund property tax rate, and percentage of state aid. Funding for alternative education is planned for 1997. (MLH)
