The glass is only about 60% full, but that’s considered “full” this year by the state legislature when it comes to state aid to public education. Governor Holden is signing a new law in five different public schools that changes the definition of full funding for education, lowering the amount of state money needed. The state is giving public education about $135-Million more than they got this fiscal year. The original law would have provided $220-Million. Lawmakers changed the law to cope with a tight budget year. They point out the change lowers the amount given public schools next year, but raises the amount to be given schools the following year.
