Where is the issue present?

  • The state governments distribute funding for schools through state sales and income taxes, lotteries, and property taxes.

  • The public school system should find a way to provide every student with a high quality of education with the funds given.

  • A new report from the U.S Department of Education documents that schools with a majority of low-income students are being cheated because schools districts across the country are inequitable distributing their state and local funds.

  • The analysis of new data on 2008-09 school-level expenditures shows that multiple high-poverty schools can obtain less funding than low-poverty schools. When the students don’t get all of their funding, they lose the resources that they need.
