Last week’s Delaware Education Funding Summit reminded us the urgent need for action to fix Delaware’s funding formula.
Our state spends $1.4 billion on education each year–yet we’re among a small group of states that don’t account for student poverty or the needs of English learners when we make our public school investments.
It’s also nearly impossible to determine how money is spent at the school-level in Delaware.
Together, we can change that for 2019. Click here to contact your lawmakers and ask them to pass Senate Bill 172!
Senate Bill 172 would require public reports on school-level spending. It would also require that all public schools–from traditional districts to charters—use a uniform, statewide approach for reporting expenditures.
