Sen. Cano’s statement on opening of Senate Education Funding Formula task force
STATE HOUSE – Sen. Sandra Cano (D-Dist. 8, Pawtucket) is offering the following statement following the first meeting of the Senate’s Education Funding Formula task force that was held on October 16. Senator Cano is a member of the commission.
The special legislative task force is charged with making a comprehensive study of the state’s education funding formula.
“At the task force’s first meeting, we were presented with sobering information on how the current funding formula is not working for many of our children and communities in the state. In particular, the English language learners of Pawtucket and Woonsocket are being consistently hurt by the current status-quo and this must change. I am looking forward to continuing the work of the task force to ensure that all the children of Rhode Island are treated fairly in receiving a quality education in our state’s schools,” said Senator Cano.
