ProJo has some budget into –
The legislature’s budget plan cuts $55 million in general revenue sharing from cities and towns, a reduction that eliminates the general revenue sharing program.
When a school district uses a bond for new construction, 54% is reimbursed by the state. What will happen to any bond passed last year? Will the taxpayers be liable for the entire amount even though they approved much less?
On education, the budget for the coming year largely funds local education at the current level. But it eliminates all state dollars devoted to professional development at local schools, approximately $6.3 million. And the plan also cuts $1.7 million in new money the governor had proposed for charter schools and “mayoral academies.”
Disappointing indeed. I guess the special interest groups (like the NEA) doesn’t put the kids first. Well, not if involves their competition.
