Inequitable school funding has been a problem since the inception
of public education. A wide variety of studies by numerous
researchers have concluded that funding influences academic
achievement and academic achievement is tied to one's quality of
life. Unfortunately, inequities in school finance often negatively
affect disadvantaged populations. Perhaps the most salient
perpetrator of inequities in school finance has been the use of
local property taxes to fund schools. Schools in low-income
neighborhoods often have less property wealth, which results in
lower levels of school revenue. Across the nation, states have
begun to look for new ways to effectively address major forms of
school finance inequity. In this book, I outline the history of
school finance in the United States, analyze the extant school
finance policy in Iowa, discuss the effects of Iowa school finance
policy on disadvantaged populations, and conclude with policy
recommendations that I believe can help increase school finance
