The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Minneapolis Public Schools Spending and Population Relationships.

Bock, Mary and Georges Tippens.

This report expands on a previous, smaller study of 2002-03 Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) teacher salary data. The earlier study found that 26 out of 28 MPS schools that had below-average teacher pay also had above-average representation of students of color. This follow-up study examines 2004-05 MPS accounting data to determine whether similar trends are persistent, and how they impact site spending. The study shows a trend of relatively low spending at sites that serve a high proportion of disadvantaged learners, and vice versa.
