Week 2 Discussion – The Condition of Education: 2013

Week 2 Discussion – The Condition of Education: 2013

Figures 1, 2, and 3 from the report by the US Department of Education show that the greatest amount of money spent in 2009-2010 went to students, instruction, and salaries while NAEP scores in reading have not shown a measurable difference in 2011 from the scores in 2009.


Look at Chapter 3, page 91, Section: Finance

Indicator 20: Public School Revenue Sources – Elementary/Secondary Education


Indicator 21: Public School Expenditures


Scroll down to P. 102, Indicator 23: Reading Performance (NAEP shows that student achievement in reading performance for 2011 does not show a measurable difference from 2009). Math scores did improve, however.


You have been asked to address the school board about the disparity between expenditures and test scores. 


(Please note that I did not provide the documentation from the textbook but I have provided three sample answers and if you bid on assignment and your bid is accepted, all you have to do is reword the sample posts to make it an original. And if you have any questions after your bid is accepted please don’t hesitate to reach out. I can provide more samples if needed.)


How will you justify to the school board that so much money has been spent with little to show in reading scores?

Week 3 Discussion – School Accounting Policy

Week 3 Discussion – School Accounting Policy

You have just accepted the principalship of a large public school. You learn early on that the sixth grade teachers sell popcorn every Friday to raise money for the sixth grade trip. When you ask who is responsible for depositing the money, you find out that one of the teachers has an account at her bank and she is taking care of the money. When you question this in regard to the district’s accounting policies, you are told that if this money is put through the general fund (as is specified by the district), the money will not be there when they get ready for their spring trip. What will be your response, in light of the fact that the “state offices of education and the local school districts have a fiduciary responsibility to make expenditures and keep financial records in accordance with legally-approved budgets” (text, p. 131).


Based on the chapter in the text, and the fact that you as the administrator are charged with protecting school funds (p. 145) and general principles that “may be applied to form the basis for an adequate and effective accounting system in every school” (p.133), respond to the following questions:


What would you tell the sixth grade teachers in this scenario?


Why is it necessary to have this conversation?
