SC School Funding: Not Even "Minimally Adequate"

on Mon, 01/28/2013 - 06:46

SC uses an infamous phrase to describe the standard of education we will provide: "minimally adequate".

State law also includes a school funding formula. For next year, it works out to $2790 per child.

This year's funding was $778 per child BELOW that, even though we had a billion dollar surplus. A school with 700 students is missing over a half-million dollars.
