The State Board of Education has joined in the effort to try to find a solution to Missouri’s school funding problem. The Board wants a place at the table in discussions dealing with the possible shift from property taxes as the main source of revenue for public schools. President Tom Davis of Kansas City says that while the Board has no plans to make any kind of recommendation, it must be ready to discuss the various alternatives. Some concerns regarding the current formula center on what critics claim are its inequities. Several suggestions for change have been put forward. One possible alternative in the mix is a shift from property to income taxes.
