Rhode Island Moves to Weighted Student Funding

Yesterday morning, Rochester Superintendent Jean-Claude Brizard brought to our attention Rhode Island’s new statewide fair student funding formula—the focus of this week’s National Journal question. The coverage includes a fascinating collection of thoughts about the policy change from an interesting assortment of people, including educators and executives. The Ocean State’s progressive move broadly aligns with the idea that when funds are allotted based on students’ needs, more students have a better chance for success.

This past April, ERS hosted a Fair Student Funding Summit, where districts from across the country discussed this policy in depth.

We’d love to hear stories from your districts. What has worked, or not worked, with your funding efforts?
