From the Publisher
"The Handbook of Research in Education Finance and Policy, Second Edition is an excellent update. Suitable for both insiders and lay audiences, it locates current issues, such as the heavy reliance on test-based accountability as a policy tool, and emerging issues, such as the growing policy role of large foundations, in historical context. Readers come to understand how an enduring concern with funding education for all gave seed to a range of substantive policy, governance, and instructional approaches which today are at the heart of educational debates."
--Susan Fuhrman, President, Teachers College, Columbia University
"While concerns about equity and adequacy of education finance are longstanding, this edition is particularly relevant and timely. With increasing demand for public services at a time when the growth of public revenues is slowing, the Handbook is an important resource for efforts to maximize return on investment."
--Mitchell D. Chester, Commissioner, Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
"This is more than a handbook; it is a comprehensive compendium of education policy from a historical, data-based, and application perspective by leading scholars. It is written in an easy-to-understand style for varied audiences including policymakers, practitioners, and scholars."
--Michael W. Kirst, Professor Emeritus, Stanford, and President, California State Board of Education
