Synopsis

Money and Schools explains and demonstrates the relationship between money and equality of educational opportunity in a way that is clear, precise, and engaging. Grounded in research and best practices, this book provides a broad overview of school finance, budgeting, and resource allocation, an understanding of the underlying economic, social, legal, and political principles that drive how schools are funded, as well as a detailed examination of day-to-day funding operations. Rich pedagogical features include chapter opening challenges, chapter drivers, point/counterpoint discussions, case studies, and recommended resources. This accessible and engaging book offers strong connections to real-world experiences and detailed information on pre-K-12 funding history, concepts, and current operations for both aspiring and experienced education leaders in school budgeting, finance, and resource management courses.

New to this edition:

  • Coverage of environmental sustainability and other emerging trends in this unprecedented uncertainty of schools' economic and social environment.
  • Updates to references and overall funding changes since the previous edition.
  • Revised end-of-chapter activities and additional resources that are aligned with the key concepts and content of each chapter.
  • Updated supplemental downloads, including editable PowerPoints.
