In This Two-Part Series of Access the Experts
Craig Maher, Ph.D., Director, School of Public Administration, UNO College of Public Affairs and Community Service, answers the questions:
Part Two: “Is Nebraska's reliance on property tax to fund K-12 schools unique or is this how other states also fund public education?”
An expert in public budgeting, public financial management, research methods, and research design, Maher’s research focuses on fiscal federalism. He has a particular interest in the effects of intergovernmental aid payments on local spending patterns, K-12 finance, the effects of state-imposed spending and revenue limitations on state and local governments. Additionally, he is currently focused on the measurement and explanation of local fiscal condition, particularly through the Recession of 2008.
