Cuts spur conversation on weighted school funding

Cuts spur conversation on weighted school funding

Isn’t something wrong when the schools losing the most money are the ones needing the most help? “The Jackson Mann K-8 school, is a Level 4 school — one level away from triggering state receivership — is due to receive a cut of $1,006,769. Brighton High School, also at Level 4 is due a cut of $1,007,459, in the proposed fiscal year 2018 budget. Those schools are at the top of a list that also includes cuts of $751,748 to the Level 4 Dever School and $190,769 at Boston Latin Academy.”
