 "A fundamental resource on designing school funding allocations."

Joseph W. Rudnicki
Superintendent, Sunnyvale Elementary School District, Sunnyvale CA

"Resource Reallocation focuses not only on funds, but also on staffing, use of building space and instructional time. One of the book's strengths is that it discusses resource reallocation as a key component in the larger comprehensive school improvement process and not as a separate budget preparation item. This book will provoke school leaders to reconsider how their own existing resources might be reallocated to address schoolwide improvement efforts and better student learning."
