50 State Adequacy (2009)

Published in Educational Policy, this work, conducted by Allen Odden, Lawrence Picus, and Michael Goetz estimated the costs of school finance adequacy for each of the 50 states given state demographics and geographical cost differences. A 50-State Strategy to Achieve School Finance Adequacy was a necessary step for understanding the results of another paper by the authors: Using Available Evidence to Estimate the Cost of Educational Adequacy.
