Closing the Gap: How the Federal Government Can Equalize School Spending between the States.
Rothstein, Richard
American School Board Journal, v188 n5 p22-25 May 2001
Per-pupil expenditures in the lowest spending states are half of those in the highest-spending states. The federal government could equalize interstate spending by subsidizing spending in poorer states. The plan must consider the dollar's varying purchasing power, higher expenditures for educating disadvantaged children, and disincentives for states and localities to reduce tax effort. (MLH)
