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.
