Second is the trend of local school taxes, the primary mechanism through which we fund our schools, to spiral ever upwards, making them increasingly unaffordable for many homeowners in the state, and for residents of certain regions of the state in particular.

Eric A. Hanushek. Journal of Policy Analysis and Management. 03/2005. Vol. 24. Iss. 2. p. 297 - 327.
Analysis of state achievement growth as measured by the National Assessment of Educational progress shows that accountability systems introduced during the 1990s had a clear positive impact on student achievement. This single policy instrument did not, however, also lead to any narrowing in the black-white achievement gap (though it did narrow the Hispanic-white achievement gap). Moreover, the black-white gap appears to have been adversely impacted over the decade by increasing minority concentrations in the schools.
