"What Will It Take" Project for a Quality Education Model
The Rainier Institute undertook a study to research Washington’s basic education funding formula and create a quality education-funding model. The state formula, last modified in 1977, is outmoded because of significant changes in classroom technologies, stepped-up state and federal government performance standards, greater student complexity and increased social and security issues in the student population.
Designed as a policy development tool, the “What Will It Take” report is a data-dependent, scholarly work that is useful for any level of educator, researcher, and student interested in public education reform.
The "What Will It Take" report is available online only upon request.
