Are current funding allocations accurately distributing Title I funds? According to a new report, when fully adjusted for regional differences, Title I funding patterns disproportionately favor rural school districts in low cost of living states.
In September of 2012, AIR completed a study, Study of a New Method of Funding for Public Schools in Nevada, for the Nevada State legislature to investigate how the state finance system could be improved by determining how it could best address the differential funding needs of students and smaller rural districts.
This report examines how well federal funds are targeted to districts and schools serving economically disadvantaged students, how Title I targeting has changed over the past seven years, how districts have spent federal funds, and the base of state and local resources to which federal funds are added.
This report provides a summary of findings from Title I evaluation studies that have become available after the publication of the National Assessment of Title I final report in 2007.
This report presents the results of a 16-month effort by the American Institutes for Research (AIR) to determine the cost of a sufficient education for all public school students in New Mexico.
The following discussion summarizes the major elements of this “costing out” study. “Costing out” is a term regularly applied to this type of analysis of adequacy in education. In the course of this endeavor, AIR obtained input from professional educators and convened a three-day meeting with highly-qualified California educators to estimate the cost of an “adequate” education.
This study focuses on two primary research questions: What analytical techniques exist for estimating the cost of an adequate education for special education students? How might these techniques be applied to estimate the cost of an adequate education for special education students in California, and how do these cost estimates compare to what is currently spent on special education students?
Review of two approaches to measurement of resources in education: an accounting approach and a resource-based approach.
