June 12, 2019

Abstract

In this testimony before the New York Advisory Committee to the United States Commission on Civil Rights, Kim Rueben examines New York State’s education funding formula and how limits in state aid amounts affect different low-income students. While New York State has one of the highest per student spending levels in the country, there are differences in the level of support across school districts that primarily serve low-income students of color and white students.
