The group tasked with reevaluating the way the state spends money on K-12 education meets for the first time Tuesday. The state’s current plan for education spending is now five years old.
The Funding Formula Working Group will examine what changes might be made to the system, which comprises the second largest slice of the state’s budget.
Among the issues the group will tackle are the funding of charter schools, special-needs education, and programs for English language learners.
The group is comprised of teachers, education administrators, and local business leaders. The group has an initial schedule of six meetings, before the end of the year. They’re expected to deliver some finding in early 2016.
