Rhode Island Is Ready: A campaign to establish a fair statewide funding formula for Rhode Island public schools

[ 1 ] March 17, 2010 |

Rhode Island Is Ready is a new campaign advocating for the creation of a fair statewide funding formula for Rhode Island public schools. Rhode Island is currently the only state that doesn’t have such a formula, which would allocate state funding to school districts in an equitable manner, based on each student’s needs and the ability of each district to raise local funds.

Information about Rhode Island Is Ready is available on Facebook. You do not need a Facebook account to access the Rhode Island Is Ready information page. If you are on Facebook, become a fan of Rhode Island Is Ready to get updates about upcoming meetings and other information. If you are not on Facebook and want to be on Rhode Island Is Ready’s email list, feel free to send your email to organizer Karina Wood at karinawood@cox.net.
