By Bruce J. Biddle, David C. Berliner


This report answers key questions about school funding: How large are funding inequities in America, why have they appeared, and how do Americans justify them? What research has addressed the effects of funding and what do the findings imply? Finally, given what we know today, what should and can be done about inequities in American funding for education?

The report is part of a series funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, In Pursuit of Better Schools: What Research Says.
