Notes

Abstract: This thesis goes several layers into the social and political debate over the fate of American public education. On the one hand, there is a push towards more efficient, market-oriented schools and on the other an emphasis on the need for greater resources. This thesis traces the transition in school funding from claims of equity beginning with Brown v. Board of Education (1954) to those of adequacy in San Antonio v. Rodriguez (1973). Using the broad theory of incrementalism, the thesis follows the development of school finance cases, leading to a state level case study focusing on Florida. Using tools of regression analysis, the relationships between key independent variables and standardized test scores are determined in an attempt to "cost out" an adequate education.
