Have You Heard About The Evidence-Based Funding Model?
February 22, 2017
For the last few years there has been much conversation about the existing school funding formula. One of the most talked about issues is that the current funding formula is both inadequate (schools are not getting what they need) and inequitable (unfair). The Evidence-Based Funding Model has emerged as the most supported alternative to the existing funding formula. It provides funding to public schools that is based on what research-based initiatives and/or programs schools are implementing. While the final details of how this model might be implemented in Illinois, you can watch a brief video here that explains it a little bit more. You can view that video by clicking on the link below.
