The New York State United Teachers has created a free, electronic archive of more than 1,300 "Where We Stand" columns by the late AFT president Albert Shanker. For 27 years Shanker's column in the New York Times offered 800 words of common sense, keen analysis and no-nonsense ideas about how to improve schools. The archive, which was produced with Institute support, is comprehensive and searchable. Find it here.
This second edition of our annual report presents measures of the effort, adequacy, and fairness of each state's school finance system, using a public database compiled by researchers at ASI and Rutgers Graduate School of Education.
