Simultaneous pressures to reduce costs and increase student achievement have never been greater than they are today. Not only is cost-cutting essential in this era of tightened resources, argue Hess and Osberg, but eliminating inefficient spending is critical for freeing up resources to drive school reform. This provocative book brings together a dynamic group of authors-scholars, consultants, journalists, and entrepreneurs-who offer fresh insights into an issue no school or district can afford to ignore.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Stretching the School Dollar"is the right book at the right time. It offers research-based thinking and real options to school leaders facing tough budgetary choices in today s economy. The book s detailed examples how to analyze financial data, make the best use of teachers skills, and harness the new technologies, for example provide a road map to economic reform that enhances, rather than obstructs, student learning. Daniel A. Domenech, executive director, American Association of School Administrators
"
Bringing together thought and action leaders, Hess and Osberg s new book provides ideas tested in the crucible of the public square. Coming at a time when taxpayers are asking superintendents to produce quantum leaps in student performance while dramatically reducing the resources to accomplish such feats, this book will be required reading. Dr. Jose M. Torres, Superintendent of Schools, School District U-46, Elgin, Illinois
