Topics in Policy Analysis (Half-Term) - Political Economy of Education Finance

Thomas Romer

Providing primary and secondary education absorbs over 20% of state and local government expenditures in the U.S. The magnitude of spending needs and the large disparities in economic capabilities across school districts create great challenges for financing public education. Financing schools has become an arena for debate not only about education but also about redistribution. Course studies the political, legal, and economic challenges involved in education finance and the diverse ways being attempted to cope with them.
