State Education Finance: The Basics
2:00 PM – 3:15 PM ET
State constitutions—along with a long line of federal case law—require state legislatures to create, fund and maintain a statewide system of elementary and secondary public education. This session provides the CliffsNotes for the historical and legal requirements and offers a policy framework for evaluating states’ revenue and financing infrastructures that underwrite elementary and secondary education.
