Detailed analysis of funding for public schools in the South. The author discusses the relative merits of support for public schools through local (i.e., county) taxation as opposed to taxes raised at the state level and then distributed to the counties. Taxation at the state level is usually favored by people in poor counties because this mechanism tends to distribute funds more evenly.
