Looking for equity in systems of choice

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

While the USAID Education Management Project supports financial oversight reform, it also addresses the fundamental problem that the original funding formula was not funding schools adequately. Mr. Mohr will present on significant policy issues created by a system that funded schools through additional ad hoc funding requests outside of the formula. Mr. Mohr will discuss how this system spiraled from funding some 10 percent of schools through “deficit” funding in 2005 to more than 60 percent in the fall of 2010, the negative incentives this placed on principals to over spend their budgets, and the serious equity issues it created for underserved populations. In addition, Mr. Mohr will discuss the details of the new funding formula, how it addressed certain policy issues, and where it still has room for further refinement. Finally, Mr. Mohr will make connections between funding system implementation and supporting the school choice policy initiatives in Georgia and how these two seemingly mutually supportive concepts (equitable funding reform and schools choice) can be at odds, especially in a data poor environment.
