Markell wants to cut private school transportation stipend
from The News Journal
Gov. Jack Markell wants to eliminate the stipend private school parents get to help pay for transportation, but is facing opposition from lawmakers who say those families deserve at least something for paying school taxes. Each year, the state sets aside money which is split among private school parents who apply. Last year, the state spent more than $1.3 million, with about 10,800 families receiving about $127 each, according to the Office of Management and Budget.
