Acquisition of same resources by the minority schools can result in similar outcomes with the advantaged schools. Funding widens the ethnic gap on one hand while it narrows the same gap on the other. For this reasons, funds matter, resources that require funds matter, and an equal distribution of funds can improve outcomes. Policy makers should always be careful when making decisions on matters concerning school finance.
