Last year, the Legislature invested an additional $1 billion for K-12 education without raising taxes as a part of its 2013-15 operating budget compromise. It was the first step toward meeting the state Supreme Court’s McCleary decision requirements to provide ample funding for basic education.

As we near the current budget cycle’s midway point, it’s clear the Legislature did the right thing for education. Our local schools are now experiencing the benefits from the education enhancements, which include significant additional funding for K-1 class-size reduction, full-day kindergarten, increased instructional hours, student transportation and more.
