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, Ed Alexander( Book )

4 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 352 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)

The administration of public schools encompasses myriad generic issues having to do with curriculum content, instructional methodology, human resource and financial management, and of course, the guidance and counseling of students. Woven into this tapestry is the obligation to individualize educational programs to accommodate the needs of a wide and diverse student population. The needs of children may be categorized by economic, social, ethnic, physical and mental differences unique to each child and family. It is incumbent upon the public school to accommodate these differences with specially designed educational programs and to remediate any effects that may be detrimental to learning. Prominent and unique among such programs is special education, for which the program of learning is usually separately funded at both federal and state levels, but even more importantly, the learning regimen is individually calibrated to address the needs of each child determined to have a disability. Indeed, assuring children with disabilities their statutory rights constitutes a substantial segment of public school administration in the United States today. The various ramifications of the educational needs of children with disabilities and their attendant circumstances are so extensive that one book on the subject cannot be sufficient to address the magnitude and broad scope of the field. However, in this book we have attempted to discuss several of the salient issues that are of prominent concern to both school administrators and teachers. The book proceeds from the broad consideration of rights and costs to more specific issues regarding the categorization of children and the disproportionality of the various racial and ethnic groups of children who may be improperly designated as disabled. Within the context of such classifications the book discusses the screening strategies on which the rights of children with disabilities are so delicately balanced. To inappropriately classify a child may result in a form of subtle discrimination or denial of a statutory right to the provision of a particular type of educational instruction or accommodation. As is indicated throughout this book, the assessment methods by which a child's free appropriate education is determined have become a science of considerable importance. Incident to this necessity of precise assessment is the need for risk screening strategies and protocols to identify symptoms, behaviors and indications of learning disabilities requiring particular and specialized educational redress. Among issues of greatest importance is the determination not to exclude children with disabilities from the regular classroom and the mainstream of learning. Inclusion or mainstreaming is among the most contentious and perplexing issues confronting school administrators. What constitutes the legal requirements and the educational considerations of the least-restrictive environment comes directly into play in provision of an appropriate education. Beyond the all-important inclusion issue, other chapters of this book address problems of cultural and social mores that affect children with disabilities, symptoms of depression in parents of children with disabilities, maltreatment of children with disabilities, and symptoms of children who have suffered post-traumatic stress from catastrophic events in their own lives. Each chapter suggests measures to be taken by educators in identifying and redressing such matters. Policy implications for the enhancement of the effectiveness of special education programs are identified for the school administrator to consider

"Financing Public Schools moves beyond the basics of financing public elementary and secondary education to explore the historical, philosophical, and legal underpinnings of a viable public school system. Coverage includes the operational aspects of school finance, including issues regarding teacher salaries and pensions, budgeting for instructional programs, school transportation, and risk management. 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. This comprehensive text provides the tools to apply the many and varied fiscal concepts and practices that are essential for aspiring public school administrators who aim to provide responsible stewardship for their students"--
