Is School Funding Fair: A National Report Card
Education Law Center
The National Report Card is a critique of state school funding systems and the extent to which these systems ensure equality of educational opportunity for all children, regardless of background, family income, place of residence or school. The report makes the assumption that “fair” school funding is defined as “a state finance system that ensures equal educational opportunity by providing a sufficient level of funding distributed to districts within the state to account for additional needs generated by student poverty.”
“Is School Funding Fair? A National Report Card” raises serious questions about how we fund education in the U.S. and in Louisiana.
