Chapter 4 examines state finance distribution formulas, and chapter 5 presents measurements of education finance equity that occur along the three dimensions of resource accessibility, wealth neutrality, and tax yield.

Chapter 9 offers an analysis of present strategies and lawsuits, and the final chapter discusses the future of education finance issues.
