Event description

Description

School funding is front and center in many state capitols, as policymakers attempt to ensure every student has access to a high-quality education. But given the complexities of our school finance systems, how should policymakers approach school funding to achieve their goals?

Join the Urban Institute for a panel discussion about state school funding policies and their role in addressing educational inequality. The panel will discuss the school funding reforms that are being proposed or implemented in states across the country, with a focus on how state policymakers can ensure that funding reaches students who need it most.
