#81: School Finance 101

The purpose of this blog is relatively narrow for the time being. When school finance topics do make the headlines, there are often many “facts” and “figures” and arguments tossed about, usually to make one point or another. Public School Spending is out of control! Administrator salaries are exorbitant! Or, that liberal judge simply made up the facts to come to his predetermined liberal conclusion!

In this blog, I intend to share the best version of the “facts behind the headlines” that I am able to pull together in a reasonable amount of time, with sufficient citation so that you can check it out for yourself. What does the state constitution actually say? Did the Kansas legislature really infuse a ton of new money into schools over the past 10 years. Do the poor urban districts in New Jersey spend ridiculous amounts on administration?
