Ten years have passed since New York's highest court ruled in the landmark school-funding and educational-rights case, "Campaign for Fiscal Equity (CFE) v.

Lawrence, Peter – School Business Affairs, 2013
Transporting students with special needs can be a costly proposition.

Pritzker, J. B.; Bradach, Jeffrey L.; Kaufmann, Katherine – Bridgespan Group, 2015
When every child has the opportunity to meet his or her full potential, families, communities, and the nation's economic future strengthens.

The nation pays a heavy price through…

Bartik, Timothy J. – W. E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research, 2011
Early childhood programs, if designed correctly, pay big economic dividends down the road because they increase the skills of their participants. And since many of those participants will remain in the same state or local area as adults, the local economy benefits: more persons with better skills attract business, which provides more and better…

Mitchell, Vincent – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
Research impact features heavily in debates about 'the measured university' and is now formally assessed by governments in the UK and Australia. Yet clear guidance on how impact can be measured in non-monetary ways is often lacking because of confused thinking and the context-specific nature of outcomes. To help resolve this, we first propose a…

Graduating from a liberal arts college leads to meaningful economic mobility (Hill & Pisacreta, 2019). College graduates typically lead longer and healthier lives, are more engaged civically, and generate more economic output (Committee on Education and Labor Report, 2019). Despite these facts, there continues to be widespread doubt about the…

Pereus, Steven C. – School Business Affairs, 2012
For most districts, budgeting has become a cost-cutting exercise designed to close the gap between revenues and expenses.

Cutting programs and services balances budgets but does not…
