Weighted Funding for Schools -- A solution too smart for the ISTA educrats

Indiana Policy Review White Paper -- Weighted Student Funding

The author, who over the last year has been meeting with Indiana state legislators and others here to discuss alternative ways to fund Hoosier public schools, is one of the nation’s foremost experts on school reform. In this FAQ she answers critical questions about how a Weighted Student Formula could fundamentally reshape school finance and performance in Indiana, particularly in regard to the state’s large achievement gap.
EDUCRATS: Get a clue!

Interesting concept, I hadn't heard of it before. I'd extend it a bit and allow the students to go to any acredited school (including private) and still have the money follow them.


It would be our opinion to let kids go to any acredited school and have the money follow them too!

We need to get the union stranglehold out of our schools.

The union is choking education and instead feeding the educrats and private construction concerns.

For instance Jim Schellinger's architectural firm stands to make a lot of money off a $200 million dollar increase in Washington Township. We understand the increase comes up for vote on December 12th.
