A recent study finds that when done correctly, weighted school funding -- in which more money is directed to schools with higher numbers of low-income students -- can positively affect students' achievement. "Holding all else constant," researchers write, an increase in "budget autonomy predicts that a given school district would have higher standing proficiency rates, and faster proficiency rate improvement relative to other districts within its state. These findings hold for disadvantaged groups."
Researchers find merit in tying school funding to students' needs
