Education finance sets the foundation for what is possible in every school in the country. Education finance equity is critical to leveling the playing field for marginalized students in under-resourced schools and communities. But in too many states, the education funding system remains inequitable, inadequate, and opaque to all but a few.
Bellwether’s work in state education finance equity aims to change the status quo, state by state, through:
- Analyses that shape the public conversation on education finance and help advocates and policymakers understand and improve finance policies in their states.
- Training sessions that equip state advocates with policy knowledge and data modeling skills to unlock the potential for policy reforms.
- Capacity support to bolster state leaders and advocates on the precipice of enacting big change.
