Fairman Quoted in MPBN Report on Public School Funding

Janet Fairman, an associate professor of education at the University of Maine, spoke with the Maine Public Broadcasting Network for a report titled “Study: Maine should boost education funding by $260 million.” Fairman said “Maine needs to move to a funding formula that relies less on local property taxes,” which would mean raising more money for education through fees or higher state taxes. She added that formula would be difficult in the currently strong anti-tax environment and concerns over the state’s slow economic recovery.
