Issues in Education – 3/18/24

Education spending is a huge “chunk of change” in the 233 billion dollar New York State budget. That amount is in addition to all the local and county funds which pour into school district coffers.

The founder of the Teaching and Learning Institute says local school districts statewide need to prepare themselves for some fiscal belt-tightening in the very near future. Dr. Ralph Kerr explains why, in this Family Life News podcast.

Also on this week’s “Issues in Education“:

  • New York residents vote on their local school budgets on May 21.
  • That same time, they’ll also elect new or returning members of the school board.
  • School board candidates have until April 22 to submit their nominating petitions.
  • Students, parents and colleges continue to be “on edge” over an historic delay in financial aid forms, the FAFSA process used by most of higher education. (Dr. Kerr says the delay is not the fault of the universities.)
