The state Public Education Department is asking the Legislature for $140 million more for public schools in 2014-15 — including $100 million for new initiatives.

All told, the department wants $2.5 billion to pay for public school. Much of that money would be spent on teacher salary increases ($18.5 million), reading intervention programs ($15.5 million), transportation ($100 million) and early childhood initiatives ($35 million).

    Thank you for all of your excellent coverage of education issues. Many folks would still like to hear more about privatization initiatives like K12Inc.
