Senate committee approves K-12 funding fix

Senate committee approves K-12 funding fix

WISH- More money could soon be going to your child's education.

A state senator is trying to pass a bill that would provide millions of dollars to offset a wrong student population estimate.

A Senate committee Thursday approved legislation that would ensure Indiana's K-12 schools have enough funds for all students.

State Senator Mishler said the legislature estimated and planned for 5,000 new students to come into Indiana's public schools this school year.

His bill would fix that gap. Mishler says the rest could be new Hoosiers from out of state, or homeschoolers who switch to public high schools to participate in extracurricular activities.

Mishler says it's not clear where all those extra students came from.

Even schools which haven't gained students would get more money for the ones they do have. Fort Wayne Community Schools had an extra 116 new students, he said.

When asked where the extra students were coming from, Mishler said, "We're not sure".

Erica Irish writes for TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalism students.

Mishler claims if no legislative action is taken, IN schools are IN trouble: "Every school would see a reduction because we'd have less per student".

"Overall, this is a point-2 percent change, so it's really tiny in terms of our total number of students", Bross said.

As his bill moves forward, Mishler said the intent of SB 189 and its counterpart, House Bill 1001, is the same.

"This bill backfills that. It takes the pupil amount back up", explained.

Similar proposals have stalled in recent years, but Republican legislative leaders have expressed support for its passage this year. Ryan Mishler's complete bill.
