School district funding is in focus this week in the state’s capital

Lieutenant Governor Tate Reeves and others are questioning whether districts are spending state contributions wisely, citing cases where districts cut funding for instruction to spend more on administrators. The state is facing a lawsuit from a number of districts, including Greenville and Leland, that claims that it has not provided the funding that is required under the Mississippi Adequate Education Program. The legislature would have to add more than 311 million dollars during the 2016 budget year to meet that funding formula.
