About AEFP

As a dynamic organization, AEFP needs to tackle the important education finance issues of the day. They are not solely about funding mechanisms and alternative approaches to taxation. Teachers' decisions about where to teach and how to teach strongly affect the cost of education. Moreover, both federal and state policies now link governance and instructional practices directly to finance. Key education finance policymakers also are key policymakers for personnel policies, governance policies, and curricular and instructional policies. Our journal has reflected this link between finance and policy since its inception.

Handbook of Research in Education Finance and Policy - Second Edition

Edited by Helen F. Ladd and Margaret E. Goertz

This is more than a handbook; it is a comprehensive compendium of education policy from a historical, data-based, and application perspective by leading scholars. It is written in an easy-to-understand style for varied audiences including policymakers, practitioners, and scholars.
