2005 School Finance Report (Research Report No. 335) - This report details the current and historical school finance data for Kentucky in relation to equity gaps between districts, and the effectiveness of the Kentucky Education Reform Act (KERA) of 1990 and Support Education Excellence in Kentucky (SEEK) in reducing that gap. The 21% reduction in the district equity gap since 1990 is attributed to the KERA program, and the report examines the cost, benefits, and economic outcomes of equalizing funding across low and high wealth areas. (Marcia Ford Seiler, Pam Young, Jo Ann Ewalt, John T. Jones, Brenda Landy, Sabrina Olds, Legislative Research Commission, Kentucky Office of Education Accountability, December 2006)...
