Pennywise and Pound Foolish in Education

Marguerite Roza and Paul Hill

Published September 2004 in Public Administration Times

This article written by Marguerite Roza and Paul Hill provides an overview of school funding. With the understanding that no one exactly knows how money for schools is spent and who receives the money, the authors suggest that weighed student funding would show exactly where the money is going and foster transparency and accountability for performance, thereby potentially closing the gaps in local public service quality between the privileged and the disadvantaged.
