State Funding for Schools Set


State funding for public schools the next two years is now set. The Governor signed into bills into law providing $5.7 billion for K through 12 schools. The bills will be taking $100 million out of the State's rainy day fund. “I think this is an important step in the discussion on public education, not simplistic K through 12, but the entire education continuum. And the changes we need to make it make it better for teachers and a better value for taxpayers.” Governor Kitzhaber received assurances from lawyers, if he signed the education bills, they would fund his proposals on early childhood education and higher education.
