Gov. Ned Lamont has released budget revisions that he said amounted to a $402.5-million investment in schools, but not all are pleased with the changes.
But enrollment changes and proposed revisions to the state grant program could result in $6.2 million less in funding next fiscal year compared to what the biennial budget has currently appropriated, according to the School and State Finance Project, a nonpartisan policy organization.
“The changes just continue to kick the can down the road,” said Michael Morton, deputy executive director of communications and operations.
