''Figuring out how schools can shift their current resources into investments that will build high-performing schools is a challenge for all school administrators. Financing Schools for High Performance provides excellent guidance for this daunting task.... In an environment of standards-based learning, this book examines the key questions and practices that leaders must address to design and manage successful schools. This work will be valuable for every leader seeking to link decentralization of decision-making wtih improved student performance.''
--The School Administrator
''Financing Schools for High Performance is a fine fit with the current political climate's emphasis on efficiency, effectiveness, and the 'bottom line' of student performance on standardized tests.''
--American Secondary Education
''Allan Odden and Carolyn Busch give compelling arguments about the need to improve the use of the education dollar. Through exhaustive research about school site-based financing both here and abroad, they provide a solid and thorough case as to why school-based financing is a key element in improving school performance. This book is an invaulable tool and guide for educators, policymakers, and others interested in raising student achievement.''
--John L. Anderson, president, New American Schools
