Montpelier, Vt., — The Coalition for Vermont Student Equity (CVTSE) today held a press conference to highlight how Vermont is currently failing its moral and constitutional obligations to ensure that all children in Vermont, regardless of where they live, have access to equitable educational opportunities.
Month: September 2021
Thank you, Representative Emilie Kornheiser, for highlighting how critical it is that we continue to strive for educational equity in VT. CVTSE believes that the time to right this wrong and correct the weights is long overdue.
Have you emailed the Pupil Weighting Task Force yet? The legislature must trust VT’s low-income and diverse districts to make the best spending decisions for their schools. Wealthy districts are already afforded this trust.
Please sign on to this letter calling for the task force in charge to correct the pupil weighting formula used to distribute education funds to rural and low-income school districts in Vermont, rather than adopting categorical aid!
lawmakers need to trust low income, rural and diverse school districts to make the right spending decisions for our schools.
Thank you to every single commenter at this week’s public hearing. Each of you took the time to let the legislature know how you feel. 100% of the public comments made were in support of fixing the flawed funding formula.
Do you believe every child in Vermont deserves a good education? On September 8, 5-7pm, there will be a public hearing on the important issue of school funding equity. Please follow this link to find out more, and to add your voice to the fight.
Low-income, rural, English language learning districts and small schools haven’t received our fair share of #VTed funds for over 20 years. It’s past time we fix this. Make your voice heard at the public hearing next week
