Charter school advocates are asking Oregon lawmakers to approve a proposal to increase the amount of money a district must give the charters according to the State's per-student funding formula. Stephanie Hausman of southeast Portland sends her children to the Emerson Charter School in downtown Portland. She says she likes the inventive teaching methods but there are some drawbacks because charters do not receive the same level of funding as the regular public schools. The Bill in the House revenue committee would bring the required per-student funding amount up to 95% of what the District receives for that student. That's 5% higher than the current level. Districts argue the funding method is not that simple and the proposal could increase big budget deficits.
