NC Joint Sub-Committee Release Draft of Ed Budget

What does this draft signal for Public K-12 Eduction? Here are some highlights–

  • Much concern about transportation fuel costs
  • The elimination of funds to support writing tests in grades 4, 7, and 10
  • Reduction of funds for Learn and Earn On-line (a response to low participation levels)
  • Continued modest support of 1:1 pilots in 8 high schools
  • Additional funding for the school connectivity project
  • Increased funding for AIG services and drop-out prevention
