Principle 4: Equitable and Sufficient Funding

Equitable and Sufficient Funding

Equity and sufficiency in state and federal funding for public education must be addressed in order to meet the imperative to provide high-quality education for all.

  • The source of funding for insuring free, universal, and accessible high-quality education must be equitable and sufficient and, therefore, cannot rely on local/state property taxes.
  • Public moneys fund only schools that operate under public school boards that are transparent and accountable to tax payers. Neither individuals nor private companies or organizations profit from charter school operations.
