Financing Schools

I'm always willing to look at new ways to finance education in NYS. This proposal from a GOP state senator on Long Island makes new teachers state employees, removing their salaries, pensions, and health costs from the district budget. I guess attrition through retirement then eases those costs away from the local and back to the state. The suggestion that districts would be capable of banding together as a bargaining unit is scary, though, and would certainly tend to ensure that the rich get richer.
