Abstract : The paper uses nine annual sets of cross-section data on state school finances to test a theory of expenditure determination and responses to grants-in-aid by local public school districts. The model is traditional in that it assumes maximizing behavior by a decisionmaking unit, the governing authority (school board) of a local public school system.
