Arkansas Legislators Approve Measure On School Finance

October 1983
Education Week;10/26/1983, Vol. 3 Issue 8, p3
The article reports on the approval of legislation by the Arkansas House of Representatives. It is a new formula for funding the state's public schools that would phase out special funding for small schools in four and a half years and reduce funding for every wealthy districts. The new formula is necessary because the Arkansas Supreme Court has ruled that the present formula is inequitable and unconstitutional.
