Comprehensive Analysis Of Arkansas Teacher Salaries: State, Region, And District, James V. Shuls, Nathan C. Jensen

Arkansas Education Reports

School funding has been an area of contention in the courts of nearly every state. Many of these court cases have challenged the constitutionality of state funding formulas, arguing the funding system was inadequate or inequitable because poor urban or rural districts often faced a disadvantage in garnering tax dollars for education.

Instead, successful schools are those which advance the learning of all their children beyond what is expected.
