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Critics of the system say it is outdated and it has not been successful in closing the state's achievement gap.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