The final report of the New York State Commission on Education Reform, otherwise known as the Zarb Commission, contains a complicated set of proposals that would shift the blame for educational failure in poor urban school districts away from the state and onto the districts themselves. This is not reform; it is an attempt to evade the state's own responsibilities.

John Yinger. Buffalo News. 12/2/2001.
The Pataki administration has set a new standard for hypocrisy in government policy. After passing unwarranted cost-of-living adjustments for wealthy homeowners in the STAR school tax program, this administration has taken the opposite position in an important school finance case, Campaign for Fiscal Equity (CFE) v. New York State, by filing an appeal that rejects fair and desperately needed cost-of-living adjustments for students in poor school districts.

This policy brief proposes a new formula for distributing educational aid in New York State, a formula designed to direct aid to the districts that, through no fault of their own, are in the greatest need of assistance. High-need districts are those with high educational costs or low property wealth. The formula will bring all school districts up to an adequate performance defined with reference to the new Regents graduation standards. This policy brief also explores various ways to share the cost of this program between school districts and the state.
