Summary

The purpose of this report is to examine some of the variations among local education agencies in their access to financial resources, educational services, and educational programs. Application of the Office of Education expenditure disparity test on the spending of Tennessee school districts in 1977-78 revealed that the arrangement for funding public schools from state and local sources does not come within the acceptable range suggested for equitable funding. The ratio between the per pupil expenditure levels of the high and low revenue districts approximates two to one and is much greater when only local funds are considered. It seems clear that students in the highest expenditure school systems have greater access to classroom teacher time along with the specialized services of other professional personnel. Access to a more varied academic program seems also to confer on students of high expenditure districts greater opportunities for the kinds of programs that each individual student needs and desires.
