Fair Funding Now! for Excellent Schooling – Podcast Episode 102 | Classnotes Podcast 102
Classnotes Podcast (February 22, 2012) All across the country, states have cut funding for public education. In some cases, the cuts are due to the recession and reduced resources in those states overall. In other cases, inequitable and poorly structured education finance systems have led to insufficient funds for educating students.
Aurelio M. Montemayor, M.Ed., and Laurie Posner, MPA, profile an IDRA initiative in Texas called Fair Funding Now! that is mobilizing statewide grassroots leadership to present the case for equitable, appropriate school funding and to develop local, regional and statewide strategies for securing equity for all children. They also describe some online tools the initiative is using that can serve as a model for groups in other states.
