School Aid Increase:
Over the next 4 years: $7 billion in total school aid, out of which $5.5 billion is foundation aid.
This year (2007): $1.76 billion total, $1.1 billion in foundation aid.
New York City
Over the next 4 years: $3.2 billion total, $2.2 billion foundation aid.
This year (2007): $710 million total, $470 in foundation aid (ultimately reduced to $258 million for inflation and other adjustments)
We want to hear your thoughts on how that money could be best put to use.
