A local superintendent recently called the state's passing of an education spending plan a relief.
Dr. Vic Zimmerman, Superintendent of Monticello Schools, calls the budget bill a relief though he never thought it would get to the start of the year and they would not have a spending plan.
Dr. Zimmerman says he is optimistic the state will fully fund education. He says the state came through on promises last year and he believes that can happen again.
Many school administrators differ on where the future of education needs to go, but Dr. Zimmerman says the current formula has been made more imperfect in recent years because of the lack of funding available.
Dr. Zimmerman calls it important to watch what happens after the November election as it could be a lame-duck session, as big changes could take place with taxes.
