Abstract

In this research, we develop a model that predicts the occurrence of education finance reform in the states. We improve upon existing studies of education finance reform that depict the process as a single event that may happen in only state supreme courts or state legislatures. We account for the possibility of reform via courts, legislatures or referendum as well as the possibility of repeated reform events. In this way, we have a more complete, more accurate picture of the reform movement in the states.
