The purpose of this study is to reveal how the present system of financing the common schools in New Mexico operates by pointing out the sources of revenue and by showing how the various funds for the maintenance of public common schools are distributed. Due consideration will be given to the operation of the present equalization law. An attempt will also be made to answer the much discussed question of whether or not this law penalizes those counties having the highest ratios of tax levy.
