Blurb/Shorttext:
Brown v Board removed the notion of ‘separate but equal' that had defined who could attend which school by a child’s race. In California, Serrano v Priest determined that an areas wealth could not be used as a discriminating factor when allocating dollars for a child’s education, thus equalizing the amount of the State contribution to each child. The Prop. 13 tax revolt removed about 80% of the local control from School Districts and School Boards. Where the above actions addressed access and equity, no one had addressed what the cost should be to provide an adequate education. Those clamoring for adequacy are being joined by others calling for efficiency in spending. This work gives a detailed look at how each dollar allocated per child is spent. You will see a startling spending range between children. This piece does not deal with academic outcomes. At the start of this study, the author was looking at production function models and cost-benefit analysis as means of determining if student outcomes where affected by spending. In each case multiiple variables clouded the effort to apply a business model to an education setting. No doubt it can be done.
