An Overview of School Finance Policy: Key Federal and Texas Litigation
MetadataShow full item record
Since Brown (1954), educational finance inequity has taken center stage on national and state level reform platforms. We begin with an overview of the three waves of federal school finance litigation and argumentation concerning equity, adequacy, accountability, and transparency in public schooling. We then outline key school finance legislative and judicial history within the Texas context. We conclude our review with a discussion of policy implications for public education in Texas and beyond.
