VUE: Voices in Urban Education

The Annenberg Institute for School Reform’s Voices in Urban Education publication, produced in partnership with ERS, grew from the ERS-convened Fair Student Funding Summit in March 2010. The summit brought together more than sixty urban education leaders from fourteen school districts that use student-based budgeting. This issues explores student based budgeting from several perspectives and includes two articles by ERS staffers.

Beyond Funding Formulas: District Transformation through Weighted Student Funding and Strategic Decentralization by ERS’ Executive Director Karen Hawley Miles and Manager Naomi Calvo discusses how strategic decentralization and weighted student funding can transform school districts, empower principals, and increase student achievement. Karen Miles also is one of the authors of "Equity and Student-Based Budgeting," an article on how weighted student funding can allow districts to equitably fund each student based on her or his specific needs.
