Do states provide sufficient resources for all children to achieve meaningful growth in school? Does the national school funding process function fairly and effectively? This forum will use the measures of "fairness" developed in the groundbreaking "National Report Card: Is School Funding Fair?" study to explore the current state of U.S. public school funding. Panelists will discuss how inequitable funding for public schools hampers efforts to boost academic outcomes and improve achievement among vulnerable student populations.
Forum in conjunction with Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice, Harvard Law School.
