The Reporter Editorial: Accountability First on School Funding

With more tax revenue coming into the state — because of a better economy and voter-approved taxes — the battle over school funding is headed in a new direction. This year, instead of arguing about how much to take away from public school districts, legislators and the governor are squabbling over how to fairly divide the increased revenue.

The governor wants to send significantly more money to school districts with higher proportions of students who are poor, who don’t speak English proficiently and/or who are wards of the state.
