“THE ROLE OF DEBT IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICTS’ INSOLVENCY PUZZLE”

by Optimization with an Impact (OpIm)

Dear Friends,

I have just completed an analysis of the outstanding debt of the school districts in the State of New York.  Drastic changes in debt level as shown by the case below inspired me to write this piece.  This is very concerning because it is taking place in an environment with declining enrollment. I hope you enjoy it.
