Education committee raises minimum teacher salaries but squeezes school district budgets

In preparing its adequacy report — the centerpiece of the state budget — the legislature's joint Education Committee raised the minimum starting salary that school districts offer new teachers. But the committee added a less-than-proportional amount of funds to the education budget, in an attempt to force districts to dedicate money specifically to salaries. Plus, a slight increase in NSLA funding and an unspecified commitment for facilities that could top $65 million. How can we pay for that and tax cuts too?
