Manar Open to Changing School Formula Funding Legislation


A local lawmaker says he’s open to making changes in his bill that would overhaul the state’s school funding formula.

 

Democratic Senator Andy Manar says he will take “constructive criticism” into account before bringing the bill for a final vote.

 

Manar’s legislation would require that most state education dollars be distributed on the basis of a district’s financial need.

 

Critics worry that will drain dollars away from successful school districts and send them to Chicago Public Schools.

 

State officials haven’t provided a breakdown yet of which districts will gain or lose funds under Manar’s bill.
