Conn. panel looks at changes to school funding
Governor seeks changes in system
A panel created by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to study how public school districts share state education money is considering some major changes, including using more accurate data to determine a city or town’s wealth and poverty level, and ultimately how much funding they receive. The 12-member Education Cost Sharing Task Force is also looking at ways to more equitably fund magnet schools, which are public schools that typically provide a specialized curriculum, according to a list of preliminary recommendations obtained by The Associated Press.
