This two-volume set answers a pair of important questions. Volume 3 asks "How does education affect economic and social outcomes, and how can it inform public policy?" Its contributors, with the help of new methodological approaches, cover econometric methods and international test score data and examine the determinants of educational outcomes and issues surrounding teacher salaries and licensure. Reflecting government demands for more evidence-based policies, they take new looks at institutional features of school systems. Volume 4 considers "What is the value of an education?" School choice and school competition, educator incentives, the college premium, and other considerations help its contributors make sense of the investments and returns associated with education.Demonstrates how new methodologies are yielding fresh perspectives in education economicsReveals how education serves as an important determinant of economic and social outcomesPresents topics and authors whose data and conclusions attest to the globalization of research Uses rich data to study issues of high contemporary policy relevance

There are critical roles in the budget process for the Superintendent, Finance Officer, and internal and external stakeholders. The superintendent functions similar to a Chief Executive Officer; they are the main go-between for the board of directors and the district. Providing a vision for the school district as a whole is critical, as well as working to ensure community engagement provides a comprehensive 360-degree perspective – which in turn drives the budget process to ensure it reflects the community served.School budgets, regardless of geography, follow state procedures for both development and final approval. These perfunctory tasks include putting a budget on display for viewing – receipt of public comment and a vote. What this book seeks to provide are ideas for incorporating ongoing community discussion and dialogue on the budget process. This book additionally provides insight and information unto the budget process that drives all school decisions.

Smart Money brings together research on education finance policy and on the uses of school and district resources, thus providing a uniquely comprehensive analysis of school finance systems. Education finance has emerged as one of the most pressing public policy issues of the new century. Americans spend more than $500 billion a year on elementary and secondary education, yet neither policy-makers nor practitioners seems to know how to align these resources with student learning goals. In fact, spending increases have outstripped achievement gains. It seems that the connection between resources and learning is growing weaker, not stronger. This ambitious volume poses four critical questions:What obstacles prevent today’s education finance systems and resource allocation strategies from supporting student success?What design principles can help link resources to student learning?What funding mechanisms are consistent with those principles?What conditions are necessary to support effective resource policies and practices?
