Guest Blog: TCF launches first-of-its-kind study on K-12 funding inequities, cost estimates for 13k+ districts

This guest blog post is provided by--and expresses the view point of--The Century Foundation. AASA welcomed the opportunity to share this information with you for your own reference.

The Century Foundation just launched one of our biggest projects to date examining inequities in school funding, Closing America’s Education Funding Gaps. The first-of-its-kind study estimates the investments needed to provide every child in the country with a fair shot at succeeding in school. It features comprehensive new data at the national, state, and district level, including two interactive maps allowing users to identify what funding gaps, if any, exist for every school district in the country (more than 13,000 in total). 

The Century Foundation is aware that the issue of adequate and equitable school funding is critical, especially during the pandemic and as the recession constricts state and local budgets. It's The Century Foundation's intent that this new data can help advance the case for policymakers to avoid harmful cuts to public education that disproportionately harm Black and Latinx students
