This paper examines the compatibility of efficiency and equity in K-12 education because they are critical values in school finance. To do this, this study relies on districts and state-level NCES data of Minnesota for 10 years (2001–2011). This study measures relative annual efficiency by estimating the relationship between multiple inputs and outputs utilizing data envelopment analysis. In addition, equity is measured by analyzing the distribution of educational resources per district using Theil’s T statistics. Copyright © 2014 28th annual UCEA Convention.
