Determinants of educational expenditures in large cities of the United States by H. Thomas James( Book )

4 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is a study of the processes by which money is allocated to the support of educational services in the public schools in large cities of the united states. Implicit in the rationale are the assumptions that resources available for the support of public education are rarely sufficient to satisfy all the demands made upon them, and that determinations about the level of public school financial support are almost always made in competitive situations. The rationale postulates three major determinants of educational expenditures in the public sphere--(1) a set of shared expectations for educational services, (2) the availability of wealth from which funds for schools can be allocated, and (3) a political system that allows the expression of demands and access to the ability. The sample for the study comprised 107 of the 119 largest school districts in the U.S. in 1960. the distribution in ada ranged from approximately 20,000 to 1,000,000 students. The 107 districts were located in 36 states. The largest number of districts in any one state was 11. in california (hemmed in by a growing body of state regulations, state-mandated services, levy limitations, salary schedules, and other staff benefits), the typical board of education may become partially immobilized, and thus attempt only relatively minor adjustments in the school budget. The prognosis will remain pessimistic until social policy for education in cities is determined on grounds other than the availability of resources under tax structure designed decades ago. (Jl)
Wealth, expenditure and decision-making for education by H. Thomas James( Book )

9 editions published between 1963 and 1971 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second in a series of studies of the processes by which resources in the united states are allocated to the support of public education is presented. A rationale for the study of school finance was formulated and applied to explain variations in expenditures associated with state efforts to equalize both educational benefits and tax loads. Explorations of the interaction of wealth and expenditures for education were made using three models. An analysis of fiscal independence vs. Dependence in the relationships of local school districts to other governmental agencies is presented. The study recognizes that higher levels of property valuation and income result in higher levels of expenditure for education, but that education produces a more efficient labor force and higher levels of personal income. Numerous tables and charts are appended
School revenue systems in five states, report of a pilot study by H. Thomas James( Book )

12 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

State-administered, educational revenue systems were compared in five states to systems in the same states which rely greatly upon local district property taxes and voluntary contributions for educational expenses. A pilot survey covered the states of california, nebraska, new jersey, washington, and wisconsin, and was designed to determine the effectiveness of their state and local educational finance systems in meeting the fiscal goals of equality and excellence. The first phase of the project was concerned with processes and mechanisms for allocating resources to local units within the institution of a state school system, referencing particularly the conditions of equity in allocation procedures. Secondly, some exploratory efforts were directed to--(1) the relationship of educational expenditures in one time period to national productivity in a subsequent period, (2) the effect of high levels of enrollment in non-tax-supported schools on the availability of resources for public school support, (3) the effect of fiscal dependence or independence on public school support, and (4) the relationship between the wealth of a district and the way in which expenditures are distributed among budget line items. Overall, about 320 separate school districts were studied. The findings of this study were inconclusive, as analytical cross-correlations made from the survey results revealed variables in almost every area of exploration which warranted further research.

The Impending Revolution in School Business Management by H. Thomas James( Book )

2 editions published between 1968 and 1970 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The development of logically sophisticated analytical models in a growing number of fields has placed new emphasis on efficiency in school management. Recent systems models guiding the longrun analysis of school management in terms of efficiency--through cost-benefit studies, systems analysis, and program planning and budgeting systems--are in sharp contrast to the traditional, conservative, shortrun process of school budgeting and accounting designed primarily to safeguard public monies. Cost-benefit analysis offers a systematic method by which benefit maximizing and cost minimizing choices can be made for a particular system and set of objectives. Systems analysis encompases cost-benefit analysis within its larger framework and allows the choice of alternative purposes for the system under study as well as choices among alternative materials, personnel, and management procedures. Program planning and budgeting systems are the most innovative, comprehensive, and change-inducing of these approaches. They focus attention on the choice of (1) objectives to be achieved, (2) the system by which to achieve these objectives, and (3) the plan which will accomplish the objectives at the lowest cost. Application of these models, which is imperfect at present, has the advantage of requiring a careful and disciplined analysis of school management problems. (Tt)

Realistic Fiscal Bases for Federal Programs by H. Thomas James( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

School districts generally reduce taxes upon receiving federal and state aid. State-aided districts increase their expenditures to education only about 15 percent of the amount of the state aid, and reduce local tax levies by 85 percent. This substitution effect also accompanies federal aid to states. To meet this problem, Congress defines federal purposes and grants federal monies (categorical grants) only to accomplish these federally-defined purposes, which frequently differ from locally defined or state-defined purposes. The federally defined purposes are training manpower, increasing economic productivity, and increasing efficiency. One possible solution to the substitution effect would be to negotiate the budgets of local school districts at the state level, and to allow the federal government to deal with the states on a general aid basis. However, a powerful new tool to increase the effectiveness of categorical grants is program planning and budgeting systems (ppbs). Ppbs is a highly systematized common language which should speed the trend toward the centralization of decision making in education. (Hw)
Independence and Survival by H. Thomas James( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Independent schools that are of viable size, well managed, and strategically located to meet competition will survive and prosper past the current financial crisis. We live in a complex technological society with insatiable demands for knowledgeable people to keep it running. The future will be marked by the orderly selection of qualified people, whatever their background, who will make the adaptations, invent the new technologies, and find the energy sources we need. The independent schools that face this fact and adjust their search and admissions policies accordingly are more likely to find the future less shocking than those that do not; they will also be more justified in their claims to training the leaders of the future. The price of survival for independent schools will probably be less independence because the judicial system is now hammering out procedures and due process for making decisions relating to the rights of teachers and to the rights of children.
