Senate Plan Passes Committee

How much more? According to the Senate’s education committee, $660 million per year more.

Nearly 3 out of 4 new dollars–$480 million–would come from state funds. Can that extra amount of funding be supported by current tax levels? There’s some suggestion that it’s doubtful.

Says the Wichita Eagle:

The committee’s biggest change was to allow districts to use additional dollars set aside for programs to help at-risk students pay for all-day kindergarten instead.

“At-risk” students have been one cause for which calls for increased funding have been issued. Is this a case of bait-and-switch?
