Education and Youth Policy
In his opinion on Board v. Board of Education , Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote, “Education is perhaps the most important function of state and local government. It is the very foundation of good citizenship.” States and localities pay for most of the costs of elementary and secondary education – but the federal government funding plays a key role. The federal government targets a greater proportion of its education spending to low-income students.
