Local School Board Member Reacts to New Funding Plan
It's not that a change in school funding formulas isn't a good idea. The state's certainly in need of something, says La Crosse school board member Neil Duresky, within reason. He says the state's constitution says that all students require an equitable education and anything lawmakers come up with should fall in line with that mandate.
Duresky says he's a bit skeptical so far of what he's heard of the state education secretary's plan for revamping school funding in the state. Duresky says any change has to come from the legislature. And, recently, lawmakers have shown little interest in changing how schooling gets paid for in the state.
