Kendrick comments on the illusion of full K-12 funding

As the Missouri legislature closes out the first half of the 2017 legislative session and leaves for Spring Break, KBIA reports that: “Republican budget writers are already touting that their proposed budget for K-12 public schools will be fully funded, based on last year’s law that shrank the size of the funding formula by $400 million.”

“Cooking the books to create the illusion of full funding doesn’t improve public education,” said Rep. Kip Kendrick, D-Columbia. “Redirecting scarce resources to unproven charter schools doesn’t improve public education.”
