From Equity to Adequacy to Choice
The Show-Me Institute is today co-sponsoring a conference about issues associated with public school finance and educational adequacy lawsuits. The other conference co-sponsor is The Truman School of Public Affairs at the University of Missouri-Columbia.
We have a conference website up, with links to the day’s agenda, working papers, and bios of presenting academics. The day is just now gearing up with an opening presentation by Mike Podgursky on the recent adequacy lawsuit here in Missouri, and a look at the correlation between increased public school funding and increased student performance (such a correlation doesn’t exist). It should shape up to be an interesting, engaging day.
