SID SALTER: Initiative 42 changes who decides funds

Backers of Initiative 42 says that their proposal is for a “phased-in” move to full funding, but the language of the constitutional amendment absolutely does not provide such a mechanism.

But while MAEP has indeed only been “fully funded” twice, the fact is that current state government leaders and the Legislature provided the largest amount of funding for K-12 education in state history during the most recent legislative session.
