This is the first book to bring together a collection of essays on the background, implementation and theory of federal block grants to education. The focus is on Chapter 2 of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act of 1981 (USA), and its implementation during the academic years 1982-83 and 1983-84 in eight states. The case studies reported herein are based on an in-depth examination of Chapter 2 implementation, sponsored by the US department of education. Among the issues considered by the authors are the financial impacts of Chapter 2, along with effect on curriculum choice, purchase and use of computers, and federal-state regulation. The book concludes with pro-con position papers on the desirability of block grants to education vs. categorical grants.
