This essential resource provides a roadmap for redirecting school funds in ways that will dramatically improve student performance. Lead author Allan Odden¾one of the nation?s foremost scholars in school finance¾offers a vision of finance reform that will give local schools more control over their budgets and ultimately boost student performance.

Allan Odden and Carolyn Busch look at the inefficiencies in current education spending, examine varied approaches to school–based financing, and offer recommendations for restructuring financing systems to meet ambitious reform goals. In addition, they propose ways to make funding more equitable across districts, outline the various elements that make school–based management work, and describe the key roles and responsibilities for the district even in a decentralized system.

Financing Schools for High Performance is filled with examples of creative finance structures, formulas, and actual school budgets that support student learning and rigorous instructional programs. It will prove to be an indispensable aid for state, district, and school–level administrators.
