education is big business

Paper instructions:
The education profession is over riddled with clichés such as “education is big business,” “Education is a major user of the nation’s economic resources,” “Education is costing too much to the lower and middle class.” The challenge of distributing and spending tax revenues in an equal and fair manner is a challenge. Equity should not be considered synonymous with quality, as equality relates to treating everyone the same, whereas equity means treating one fairly. As Federal and State budgets are being reduced, as taxes are being held to a ceiling limit, revenue is not keeping up with the financial demands for running a school system. Despite these constant cuts and the impact on the school budgets across the nation, the issue of equality and equity are major concerns. To meet the challenge of funding schools equally, various patterns of financing education are emerging, but the fairness and equality is always an area of debate among taxpayers.
