New Roza Paper on Equalizing Resources

Center on Reinventing Public Education scholar Marguerite Roza and a colleague have a paper up about how districts could help to equalize uneven resources between richer and poorer schools without forcibly transferring teachers. (Disparities in teachers' salaries create much of the unevenness between more- and less-advantaged schools.)

It's a fraught issue that's related to the "comparability" financial test districts have to pass in order to receive their Title I funding. If you're sufficiently interested in this wonky but important issue, read more in this related story. Then write in and let us know whether or not you agree with Roza's analysis.
