School leaders aim to boost charter school funding; Proposal would allocate county funding based on enrollment.
Gazette, 21 Dec 2006 (Leonard).
Prince George’s County school leaders have thrown their support behind proposed legislation that would increase charter school funding in the county, but some advocates say the new formula would still not be enough.
The bill, proposed by state Del. Doyle Niemann (D-Dist. 47) of Mount Rainier, would require the county school system to divide its operating budget by the number of students enrolled and fund 85 percent of that figure to each charter school student.
