The basics of school funding in Indiana: Difficulty defining fairness
from Chalkbeat Indiana
There is perhaps no more difficult and complicated issue in education than paying for schools, and Indiana in 2015 is heading into a renewed debate about how its funding system should work. Republican leaders, who control the state legislature, have promised an overhaul aimed at making funding more fair. But even defining "fairness" gets tricky, as school leaders with different challenges in urban, suburban and rural communities worry that somebody else's gain from any change to the state's calculation method could mean less money to educate their students.
