  34. 34. Looking forward K-12 education financing is strained in several ways:  weakness of local revenues—property tax no longer a cushion for schools seeing drops in state assistance  volatility in state revenues—less predictability, with implications for workforce  population of school age children increasing in states with lower fiscal capacity, smaller state budgets, economies harder hit by recession Higher ed spending is growing but not through govt appropriations; funded increasingly through tuition and thus affected by many factors, e.g., changes in federal loans/grants, interest rates, jobs, personal income Federal funds/policies may become more important as state differences grow in K-12 financing and as higher education revenues are privatized Yet federal support for all levels of education is, at best, vulnerable—to sequestration process, political immobilism, focus of budget balancing efforts on discretionary programs (fed education programs except some student loans are non-defense discretionary and thus subject to caps) Biggest problem, however, is state fiscal systems: shrinking and volatile revenue base, competition for resources from health care programs, etc.; and persistent regional patterns, which raise hard issues for federalismRockefeller Institute of Government 34
