Student-Level Finance Data: Wave of the Future?
Picus, Lawrence O.
Clearing House, v74 n2 p75-80 Nov-Dec 2000
Reviews literature on resource allocation in schools, arguing that collecting data at the student level (rather than at the school level) can be more cost-effective and more useful in improving understanding of student learning. Discusses four school finance areas that would benefit from student-level data: equity, adequacy, accountability, and productivity. (SR)
