Manar: Reworking School Funding Formula Helps Districts in Financial Crisis


A local lawmaker says his school funding proposal will help the state’s limited education dollars go farther and accomplish more.

 

Democratic state senator Andy Manar is proposing a significant overhaul in the state’s school funding formula, one which would allocate most dollars on the basis of a district’s financial need.

 

Currently, less than half of education funding uses that as the criteria.

 

Manar says as a result, the state has a handful of wealthy, overachieving districts… and a lot that are on the brink of financial collapse.
