Special Report v39 6 Managing Money
Money fuels the daily operations of every school and district, but big-picture debates about K-12 funding often take place at a level far removed from the classroom. This Education Week special report puts the focus on what those on the hot seat—superintendents, principals, and other local leaders—actually do with the funding they get and what stands in the way of their making better use of it. It includes exclusive Education Week Research Center polling on what school and district leaders think about their challenges in managing the taxpayer’s public school dollar.
