Issue

A large body of recent research shows that investing wisely in schools improves a range of student outcomes. The schools that receive less funding are usually those with large populations of students from low-income families, students of color, and students with disabilities. Those funding disparities lead to disparities in educational outcomes. Research from the Learning Policy Institute and others identifies the causes, impacts, and solutions to address inequitable school funding.
