The economics and financing of education by Roe Lyell Johns( Book )

5 editions published between 1975 and 1983 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educational finance policies have such a critical influence on every educational service and program, on the national economy, on the welfare of individuals, and even on the welfare of the nation itself, that educational finance cannot be studied adequately in isolation from our total social system. Therefore, the authors have used the systems approach in presenting much of the present knowledge of educational finance and many of the major problems and issues in that area. This approach involves an extensive analysis of the economics of education and of the effect of education on the national economy. It implies utilization of the planning-programming-budgeting system or the educational resources management system. Modern fiscal policies for education require long-range educational planning, an essential component of this approach. The study of school finance and business management involves systems analysis and operation research to maximize educational return per unit of financial input. Both administrative policies and the structure of district organization must be appraised in terms of financial efficiency and effectiveness in providing needed educational services. The effects of alternative educational finance models on the equalization of educational opportunity and on equity to taxpayers must be given careful consideration. (Author)
Educational need in the public economy by Kern Alexander( Book )

5 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed as a basic resource document for public policy makers and school finance program planners, this final publication of the National Educational Finance Project presents a variety of data and arguments to support the concept of increased public investment in elementary and secondary schools. Within the different chapters, various authors present an economic rationale that justifies this investment and provide educational finance data that document the need for a major commitment of public funds to education. Tax capacity and effort of the 50 states are examined, and sources of revenue to support the proposed educational expenditures are identified. Finally some guidelines are presented regarding the design of state school finance formulas that may better serve to equalize educational opportunity. (Author/JG)

Diving deeper than other school finance books, the authors explore the political framework within which the schools must function, discuss the privatization of education and its effects on public schools, offer perspectives regarding education as an investment in human capital, and expertly explain complex financial and economic issues.
