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.”
