States and districts who have restructured K-12 education to increase local control of budget decisions have not reported significant improvements to student performance.

Decentralization can disproportionately impact minoritized and low-income families. Some funding models, such as California's Local Control Funding Formula, aim to reduce inequities by providing additional funding to high-need districts.
