Changes Could Come To School Funding

Governor Charlie Baker is looking to  make changes to the way the state funds local education.  

Baker's budget  proposal for the upcoming fiscal year will include his proposal to  overhaul the school funding formula.  

The education funding system was  established in 1993 as part of a large education reform law.  

Critics of  the system say it is outdated and it has not been successful in closing  the state's achievement gap.

It is a proposal that poorer cities and towns have been wanting for years.
