Student Funding Cuts

Since the recession began, only Oklahoma and Alabama have beaten Arizona when it comes to K-12 per student funding cuts, according to a new report from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. The ranking comes in spite of a recent $82 million dollar increase in state schools funding, according to Dana Naimark of Children’s Action Alliance.

She says lawmakers are raising expectations for student achievement, but ignoring the investments needed to meet those higher standards.
