Use Federal Funds to Mitigate Impacts to Overweight Districts
Vermont incorrectly distributes education funds in a way that awards more affluent districts at the expense of low-income, rural and diverse districts. We have the UVM/Rutgers 2019 study to prove it. Vermont also has an unprecedented amount of federal dollars in our state coffers right now. That means we can fix this flaw while mitigating impacts on more affluent district. But we must act now or we will lose our opportunity to help districts roll in these changes.
