School finance was once the clear and protected domain of board members and superintendents. Schools received money from state and federal governments. In some cases school boards levied local property taxes; in others, districts received tax money from county or city government. With few limitations, and most of those on federal funds, the school board then decided how the money should be spent. State authority, however, is now eclipsing local authority in school finance matters. State legislatures and the judicial system are increasingly holding the state, not local districts, accountable for an equitable and high standard of education for all children. Along with this responsibility comes state control of money and educational resources. The intensification of state authority over resources and education quality threatens to clash with America's long-standing political preferences for local government responsiveness and citizen oversight. If the trend toward state centralized financial power continues, school boards could see themselves edged out of their roles as citizen overseers of their schools. This situation did not happen overnight, of course. In the 19th and early 20th centuries, local control over schools reigned supreme. State involvement was mostly limited to building construction. With the post-World War II civil rights movement, state and federal authority over schools grew. Intervention, in the forms of judicial decisions and legislative efforts, was deemed necessary to open up public schools for all students. Racially segregated schools were struck down by

MELD: Programs to Strengthen Families MELD’S mission is to strengthen families by improving the quality of parenting in the United States The Beginning
As the recipient of a 1973 grant from the lilly Endowment, Ann Ellwood, MELD’s Executive Director, conducted a thorough investigation of the fields of early childhood education and parent education to answer the question, "How can families be strengthened?" Ellwood concluded that parents can learn from each other, they can give each other support, and they should be free to make informed choices. She founded MELD, a nonprofit agency whose parenting education programs value and model that philosophy. Programs for Parents
MELD piloted five groups of new parents in Minneapolis in 1975. Since then, MELD has developed eight programs using the peer self-help group model of parents helping parents.
  • MELD for New Parents MELD Special MELD for Young Moms MELD for Growing Families MELD para Nueva Familia MELD for Young Parents MELD for Young Dads MELD for Parents Who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing MELD for African American Young Mothers
Each program’s purpose is to provide the most useful information in the most supportive environment that can be created. A primary prevention program, most of MELD’s programs serve groups of parents during pregnancy and the child first two years. Experienced parents volunteer to facilitate MELD groups. After careful selection, they receive extensive training and support from a MELD site coordinator.

    Feb 20, 2002 WASHINGTON (AP) - When the Supreme Court last considered executions of the mentally retarded, only two states banned the practice. Now, 18 states prohibit it, and that math will weigh on the court as it reconsiders the issue and the fate of a condemned man with an IQ of 59. The court debated Wednesday how much public standards have changed since 1989, when the court upheld those executions on a 5-4 vote. Justice Sandra Day O'Connor wrote then that there was "insufficient evidence of a national consensus'' against the executions to determine that they were unconstitutionally cruel and unusual punishment.

    District Wins Stunning Victory in
    Schools of Choice Transportation Case*
    By Peggy Burns, Esq. S chool districts in Arkansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, and the Dakotas can breathe a sigh of relief now that the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals has issued its ruling in Timothy H. v. Cedar Rapids Community School District . The case concerned Kratisha, a special education student whose parents wanted to have her "choiced in" to a school in the district which was not her neighborhood school. Kratisha, who has cerebral palsy, spastic quadriplegia, multiple orthopedic problems, and severe communication disabilities, attended Thomas Jefferson High School, where it is not contested that she was receiving a free appropriate public education (FAPE). Her IEP required special transportation services - a lift bus and establishment of a special route - which were provided when she attended her neighborhood school. Her parents wanted her to attend John F. Kennedy High School under the district's intra-district transfer policy. That policy provided in part: "Parents shall be responsible for the transportation of students not attending their resident area school." When the district refused, the parents filed a claim under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 ("§504").
