From the Publisher"[Chapter 1 is] Brilliant! Finally, someone understands the need to provide talking points for educational leadership candidates so they may hold educated conversations with their politicians and school community."
"I enjoyed reading "Public School Finance." I like the authors' straightforward, informal approach to the teaching of school finance. Moreover, [they go] to great pains to make it interesting! What a change from most textbooks. [The authors] bring in enough data and introduce sufficient controversial topics to provide the basis for lively classroom discussion."
"The case studies are excellent. I have searched for school finance case studies to supplement the texts I have used and have come up short. My overall impression of the text is one of great enthusiasm. In the 14 years I have taught school finance courses, this is the first time I have read a text that was written in common sense language with school leadership emphasized. YES - I would definitely adopt this text as soon as it is available. I am teaching the finance course this spring and wish that it were available right now!!"
"I especially value the cases at the end of each chapter because I strive to have this finance course be as applied (e.g., experiential) as possible. This text offers a logical sequence of topics. Provides essential background knowledge for understanding school finance, affording a platform on which I can implement skill-based instruction relevant to the role of principals and supervisors in the state. Throughout, the writing style is fast-paced and easily read - a real bonus for a text on school finance. ..I would adopt this text for my course."
