Parnell Says Too Early To Tell For Education Funding

As the Governor unveils his FY2015 capital and operating budgets in Anchorage, school districts are watching for how the $2 billion drop in oil revenue will impact funding for education. The Governor has previously downplayed any fear…


Gov. Parnell: “There’s a little bit of premature concern because until the budget is done from the stat and we always add money to it for education, until that’s done it’s a little premature to be wringing hands over it yet.”


The Governor said he wouldn’t rule out a decrease in the Base Student Allocation, but said if that were an option, he’d also look at giving Districts more “flexibility” in reducing costs.
