Equal doesn’t mean equitable, and that is especially true when it comes to school funding in the United States, where laws haven’t adjusted to evolving communities and student populations. In the United States, schools get most of their funding through a per-pupil formula that allocates money from local taxes, state lotteries, and federal grants to districts, who in turn allocate funds to schools (Turner, Khrais, Lloyd, Olgin, Isensee, Vevea, & Carsen, 2016).
