A Guide to Ohio School Finance. Money and Education by Brenda L Biles( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To help Ohio's educators, legislators, and others understand school finance reforms and equalization plans, this manual provides an overview of the state's public elementary and secondary school financing and explores issues and options in educational finance. An introductory chapter traces the legal history of school finance reform, explaining the significance of Serrano V. Priest and other cases in six states. Chapter two reviews the fiscal structure of Ohio's state and local governments and discusses the concepts of fiscal effort and fiscal performance. Moving from the broader governmental context, chapter three describes Ohio's current plan for state educational aid and the levels of aid it grants to districts. The chapter explains how to compute the state's equal yield formula--a "district power" equalizing plan--and gives exercises to help the reader learn to apply it. Also included are descriptions of Ohio's categorical aid for vocational and special education, disadvantaged students, and others. Finally, chapter four analyzes statewide disparities in school districts' wealth, expenditures, and tax rates and examines their relationships to the school finance formula. Appended is a brief update on recent legislative changes in the state's aid plan. (Author/RW)

A Guide to Missouri School Finance. Money and Education by Brenda L Biles( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part of a series on state education finance, this manual is intended to help Missouri educators, legislators, and citizens understand school finance reform by providing them with an overview of Missouri's financial aid to public elementary and secondary schools and by exploring selected issues in financial equity in education. The first chapter traces the legal history of school finance reform in the 1970s, noting the importance of Serrano V. Priest and other decisions. In chapter two the authors review Missouri's economy, its state and local governmental fiscal structure, and the concept of fiscal effort. Chapter three reports the level of state aid to Missouri schools and discusses the state's two formulas for achieving educational equity. The first is the minimum foundation formula, which guarantees each district a specific level of per-pupil expenditure; the second is the guaranteed tax base add-on, which augments state aid to districts that increase their tax effort to spend above the foundation amount. Exercises help the reader learn to compute both formulas. Finally, chapter four analyzes statewide disparities in school district expenditures, wealth, and tax effort and compares Missouri districts' wealth levels with their educational services.
