The School Finance Redesign Project: A Synthesis of Project Work to Date
Public schools in the United States should become more focused on continually improving student performance, and all money spent on education should reflect that goal, concludes a report by researchers from the School Finance Redesign Project, a nonprofit organization based at the University of Washington in Seattle that focuses on influencing school finance policy.
The report—a preliminary summary of findings from the four-year project on public school finance—is made up of interviews with educators and policymakers in North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, and Washington state, and a review of the existing financial and legal frameworks in each of those states.
