A bill currently being considered by the Connecticut General Assembly would revamp how the state determines its education funding distribution, which could potentially mean an additional $2.6 million for Middletown schools.
H.B. No. 5283 was passed by the state’s Education Committee on March 25, and is now being considered by legislators in Hartford. The bill proposes a new, simplified way of doing business.
Michael Morton is the deputy executive director of communications and operations for the School and State Finance Project, a nonpartisan organization founded in 2015 with the goal of ensuring that all Connecticut students are funded equitably and transparently.
