EduClips: As We Prepare for Thanksgiving, Let’s Look at Some of the November Education Headlines You Might Have Missed From America’s 15 Biggest School Districts

November 2008:25 AM

November Elections Could Signal Retreat on Charter Commitment: After a decade when the charter school movement gained a significant foothold in New York, the midterm elections could spell a retreat. Democrats at the forefront of the party’s successful effort to take over the state Senate have repeatedly expressed hostility to the movement. John Liu, a newly elected state senator from Queens, has said New York City should “get rid of” large charter school networks. Robert Jackson, who will represent a Manhattan district, promised during his campaign to support charter schools only if they have unionized teachers. While New York City, the nation’s largest school system, has many excellent charter schools, it seems highly likely that a state legislature entirely under Democratic control will restrict the number of new charter schools that can open and tighten regulations on existing ones.

Property Tax Reform Seen as Real Possibility in 2019 Legislature

November 2008:25 AM

For the first time in a long time, the Texas Legislature is given a good shot in the coming session of increasing funding for public education, which could lead to an end in the upward spiral of residential property taxes, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports. In the last three sessions, the Republican-dominated Legislature, trying to stress its conservative credentials, has cut state aid to education funding.  That achieves two GOP goals...to enable Republicans to claim to be 'holding the line' on higher education spending, and to enable more funding to be diverted to charter and private schools. But the result, according to Northside ISD Superintendent Brian Woods, has been to push that spending responsibility down to local property owners. view article  arw

School Finance Commission hears state of education funding, expenditure recommendations

November 1908:40 AM

The Texas Commission on Public School Finance’s Revenues Working Group met Tuesday to hear the current state of public education funding in Texas and review recommendations from the Commission’s Expenditures Working Group–a group of commission members tasked with recommendations for changes on how public education money is spent. On the funding front, Education Commissioner Mike Morath outlined that education spending in total was $60 billion for the 2016-17 school year (including federal funds), that state and local spending has increased about $1 billion a year. While this sounds like a significant increase, remember that per-pupil funding–adjusted for inflation–has actually decreased since 2008. Commissioners also heard from Morath that TEA’s budget request for the next biennium is actually $3.5 billion less than the previous budget, because of rising local property values. view article  arw
