Taking the Mystery Out of Illinois School Finance

According to Connexions, "Taking the Mystery Out of Illinois School Finance (3rd Edition) was written by Dr. Thomas A. Kersten, Professor of Educational Leadership at Roosevelt University in Chicago, Illinois. This textbook was developed over several years and is designed to explain the key principles of Illinois school finance in a way that graduate students in educational administration programs, teachers, school board members, parents, building-level school administrators, and other interested citizens can grasp the essential content without getting bogged down in excessive financial detail. Only by understanding the basics of Illinois school finance, can school administrators, board members, and other constituents make informed decisions."
