School Finance Reform: How should we pay for schools?

Adopt Fair Funding for Our Future in order to:

  • Guarantee a minimum amount of state aid for every student;
  • Incorporate a poverty factor into the formula, accounting for families' ability to pay—not just property value;
  • Establish sustainability in state funding, while strengthening rural, declining enrollment, and negatively aided districts; and
  • Redirect the school levy tax credit directly into school aids, increasing transparency and state support for classroom learning.
