Two bills now moving through the state Legislature could drain half a billion a year from our public schools. That’s one-quarter of the total state education budget for our schools for fiscal year 2019-2020. It could mean the loss of up to 3,000 full-time teaching and service personnel positions.

Our schools are starved for funding already. These bills would threaten the very future of public education in our state.
