School finance policy is a foundational component of public education that directly affects all of Missouri’s students and classrooms.
In the 2017–18 school year, just over $12.5 billion dollars were spent on public education in Missouri. Approximately one-third of this was financed from state coffers via a funding formula that distributes state dollars to each of the 518 school districts in the state. There are still significant cracks in the foundation of the formula that must be addressed. This workshop highlights these problems and provides recommendations for student-centered reforms that promote fairness, transparency, and local autonomy. School finance policy is more than just complex formulas and calculations—it’s a foundational component of public education that directly affects all of Missouri’s students and classrooms.
