Still Not Enough?

Bruce Baker, a University of Kansas education professor, says that taxpayers must still pay in another $2,850 per student for the Kansas City, Kansas schools. Schools for Fair Funding, a group that wants more money for its member schools, brought Baker to speak before a House committee in Topeka.

Speaking of last week’s $500 million plan, the KC Star says

Under the House plan, extra money for failing students in six high-poverty districts would increase from $822 per student currently to $1,594 next year, for a total of $5,901 per student in general and at-risk state aid.

Baker says that’s not enough, arguing that a new study from Syracuse University professors was more appropriate.
