Deborah Verstegen, PhD, is a professor of educational leadership, College of Education, University of Nevada,
Reno. She served as Edwin J. O'Leary Endowed Chair of Financial Management, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign,
and was a professor of finance and policy in the Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia for nearly two
decades. Prior to joining the university community, she was a teacher, administrator, and legislative aide in state
government. She has had teaching experience at all levels, from pre-school, elementary, secondary, and community
college, to university. Her administrative experience in education is also broad. She has been a central office
administrator for a K-12 school system in Alaska's Iditarod Area School District, Director of the Mid-management Program
at the University of Texas at Austin, and Department Chair in Educational Leadership at UNR. She is author or co-author
of over 300 books, articles, monographs, and chapters, including Financing Education in a Climate of Change. Professor
Verstegen has developed an equity statistic, later given her name by scholars-the "Verstegen Index." The focus of her
scholarship is on equal opportunity and justice in the area of education finance, and the fiscal aspects of education
policy at the state and national levels. Professor Verstegen has been active in school finance litigation, serving as an
expert witness, as a consultant with government and education organizations, and in numerous professional
organizations-she has served twice on the Board of Directors for the national education finance association. She is a
past editor of the Journal of Education Finance and currently serves as policy editor. Her alma mater, the University of
Wisconsin, awarded her an alumnae achievement award. She was named Distinguished National Fellow in Finance by the
National Education Finance Academy, and a recent recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award. Robert C. Knoeppel, PhD,
is the Dean of the College of Education at the University of South Florida. In his position, Knoeppel plays a key role
in shaping a distinctive vision for the future of the college that maintains alignment with USF's strategic priorities.
An experienced higher education leader and nationally recognized researcher, Knoeppel was previously a professor and
chair of the Department of Educational and Organizational Leadership Development at Clemson University. Knoeppel's work
has been regularly published in the Journal of Education Finance and Educational Considerations, and he has authored
over 100 refereed journal publications, book chapters, technical reports, and conference papers in the field of
education finance, education reform, and educational leadership over the course of his career. Prior to his tenure at
Clemson, Knoeppel held an academic appointment at the University of Kentucky, where he led courses in educational
leadership studies. He also worked for several years in the Virginia public school system as a school counselor,
administrator, and coach. Knoeppel serves as President Elect and a member of the board of trustees of the National
Education Finance Academy where he earned the Scholarly Paper of the Year Award for three consecutive years. Dr. Vern
Brimley has been a public school administrator for over 30 years, retiring as administrative assistant to the
superintendent of Provo City Schools. In the span of his career, he has been director of federal programs; involved in
school purchasing, research, and public relations; a consultant for several school districts; and worked as an
elementary teacher and principal. Additionally, he served on the State of Utah committee delegated by the Utah State
Legislature to study the Utah School Finance system. Twelve major changes resulted from this study, including
equalization of capital outlay budgets. Dr. Brimley also taught in a secondary modern school in Great Britain for a year
on a Fulbright Exchange scholarship. He was selected as one of 40 educational administrators from throughout the U.S.
and Canada to participate in the initial intensive two-month study program under the sponsorship of the National Academy
for School Executives (NASE) - the training arm of the American Association of School Administrators (NASA) - and the
Danforth Foundation. The Study-Leave Fellowship provided the opportunity for Dr. Brimley to study the financial
structure of state educational systems and state departments of education. He was designated as an Innovative Educator
by the Kettering Foundation. Dr. Brimley was a student of Professor Percy Burrup and did research for the first edition
of Financing Education in a Climate of Change and was co-author of the third edition with Professor Burrup. After Dr.

Verstegen as co-author for the eleventh and twelfth edition. Dr. Brimley served as an Adjunct Professor at Brigham Young
University and has taught many education leadership courses, but specialized in school finance and school business
management. He has presented papers at conferences including the American Education Finance Association and has written
articles on various education issues. He is married to Dawn Baker Brimley. They are the parents of three daughters and
