Smart Money brings together research on education finance policy and on the uses of school and district resources, thus providing a uniquely comprehensive analysis of school finance systems. Education finance has emerged as one of the most pressing public policy issues of the new century. Americans spend more than $500 billion a year on elementary and secondary education, yet neither policy-makers nor practitioners seems to know how to align these resources with student learning goals. In fact, spending increases have outstripped achievement gains. It seems that the connection between resources and learning is growing weaker, not stronger.
Jacob E. Adams, Jr. is professor of education at Claremont Graduate University, chair of the National Working Group on Funding Student Success, and founder of the School Finance Redesign Project, which explores ways to redesign education finance to support student achievement.
