Abstract: The relationship between the American public educational system and the financing of education has been debated for many years. The proper amount of funding which is necessary for public school systems to operate their schools in such a manner as to meet the needs of the local community is often a central topic for debate. Therefore, the purpose of this historical study was to review and analyze judicial decisions which have influenced policy making in regard to providing funding to public education where there was a demise of federal funds as specifically related to federal Impact Aid. The data for this study was obtained from court cases and federal commission reports. Additional data was collected from historical reviews of the financing of public education.
