Courting Backlash: The Risks of Emphasizing Input Equity Over School Performance.
Hess, Frederick M.
Virginia Journal of Social Policy & the Law, v6 n1 p11-46 Fall 1998
Pursuing fiscal input equity will not produce a more equitable society or mitigate children's home and neighborhood environments. Standardizing funding provokes greatest voter dissatisfaction in wealthier districts. Four institutional elements (teachers' unions, school governance, school discipline restrictions, and special education) produce inefficiencies in troubled urban districts. (Contains 159 references.)
