An audio broadcast of our recent seminar “Student-Based Funding in Oakland and San Francisco: Implementation and Policy Implications” is now available. The Feb 13th seminar featured Jay Chambers, Larisa Shambaugh and Jesse Levin from the American Institutes For Research presenting findings from their recent study of the implementation of a weighted student funding system in two California school districts. They assessed how the distribution of resources changed in these two districts after the move to student-based funding, and identified “lessons learned” for other districts and for state policy-makers who are considering more equitable and effective strategies for allocating scarce resources in California’s education system. The speakers were introduced by PACE’s Executive Director David N. Plank.
