Summary: Financing Education in a Climate of Change, 10/eVern Brimley, Jr., Brigham Young UniversityRulon R. Garfield, Brigham Young UniversityThis practical, easy-to-read book is both scholarly and engaging. It appeals to a diverse audience of students, educational leaders, parents, and legislators. School finance is an evolving topic and this text, now in its Tenth Edition, continues to cover all current trends to provide r...eaders with a firm knowledge of educational finance policies and issues that administrators need to understand. It serves as an excellent reference for both practitioners and academics.New to this Edition: Information about the No Child Left Behind law (NCLB) as it relates to school finance is addressed throughout the text with a more comprehensive description of federalism and its ramifications to NCLB as it encroaches on local control and state responsibility. Addresses the importance of safety and security in an effective school environment (Ch. 14). Thoroughly explains the concept of "weighting" to provide school leaders with a working knowledge of how to finance special education students responsibly (Chs. 3 & 4). Covers new issues dealing with school choice - vouchers, tax credits, charter schools; Explores increased interest in adequacy, economics, and federalism (Chs. 1, 2, & 8) Demonstrates the impact of the courts on public schools, keeping users well informed on the court's influence on finance policy in education. The Tenth Edition examines the enhanced focus on the shift from equity to adequacy and the controversy centered on different perceptions of state constitutional language (Chs. 9 & 10). Places new emphasis on duties of school and district level administrators, providing information relating to the new Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) requirements and reporting procedures - Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) and other practical background for both practicing and future principals and district leaders (Chs. 6 & 13). The Tenth Edition reviews the historical periods of school finance and describes a new sixth state (Ch. 7).Here's What Your Colleagues Are Saying:"I have used the text for several years and have found it an excellent choice for my course."Marilyn Hirth, Ball State University"The text does a remarkable job of presenting the topic and explaining the various elements that detail and develop the topic and does not overstate the point to boredom or statistical analysis unnecessary for building level administrators." Joseph Herbert Torres, New Mexico State University

  • by Darcy

    This book was fairly thorough in discussing the subject of school finance.

    It provided a global view of how the complex system of school finance is established. There were some individual state requirements that were not managed, but that is logical in the light of the audience for which the book is written.
