Abstract

INTRODUCTION Financing K-12 public schools in the United States is overwhelmingly a governmental responsibility. The National Center for Education Statistics reports that in 2009-10, sources other than federal, state, and local governments accounted for just 2.0 percent of all the revenues received by public schools. Direct contributions to public education from outside sources have been on a gradual decline from a high in 1994 of 2.7 percent. 1 Even this figure overstates the financial contribution of nongovernmental organizations that provide funds to support or improve public schools, since it includes income from various fees 2 as well as contributions and donations from private sources.
