In response to this post AFTie Ed (who I still owe a pension post) makes an interesting point and raises a caution about weighted-student funding. What I think he’s getting at, though it isn’t often mentioned, is that transparency, while good, does create its own set of problems. In general, school finance is an inequitable opaque mess right now, but that opaqueness does hide some subsidies and there will be some political riddles to really getting at equity in a more transparent financing scheme. No one should be naive about that.
