Malloy’s budget proposal gets education funding all wrong
It continues to be troubling to see how, when faced with deficits and budgetary problems, the state either makes or proposes to make cutbacks in educational funding to towns.
Back in late December, the state announced cutbacks in state aid to municipalities through its Educational Cost Sharing (ECS) program.
On Feb. 8, in his proposed biennial budget for the state, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy (D) included various cuts in ECS funding for towns in the Northwest Corner.
