Editorial: Is H.833 a step toward reform?

Posted on April 2, 2014 |
By Angelo Lynn



This year the Legislature has successfully crafted a viable bill, H.883, that focuses the public’s attention on education reform. That’s no easy task, and it’s to the credit of the House Education Committee under the leadership of Rep. Johannah Donovan, D-Burlington. That committee, along with its Senate counterpart, has been studying ways to bend the curve on education spending for the past several years, and, as importantly, craft a system that uses the money spent educating Vermont students more effectively.

On Point in Education: Addressing the opportunity gap

Posted on March 26, 2014 |
By Peter Burrows



Burrows, Peter 2013 CMYK.jpg

One of the most promising aspects of Vermont’s political and educational landscape is the belief in community and civic engagement. For those coming to this state from elsewhere, it is a powerful realization to see such ardent participation in the health of our communities. It’s refreshing to see the public go beyond recrimination to take action and be part of finding solutions.

Opinion: Problem with rising school taxes in Montpelier

Posted on March 21, 2014 |
By Jay Harrington



The article “Lawmakers lament school tax hikes” (Addison Independent, March 13) made me concerned because the lawmakers didn’t see the disconnect between the school budgets’ changes and the state’s school property tax rate.

Lawmakers lament school tax hikes

Posted on March 13, 2014 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — While the Vermont Legislature did not convene last week, lawmakers received a homework assignment doled out by area voters on Town Meeting Day: Do something about rising education property taxes.

Vermont residents voted down 35 of approximately 250 school budgets that were on communities’ town meeting dockets on March 3 and 4 — the largest number of failed spending plans since the advent of Act 68 in 2005, according to Rep. David Sharpe, D-Bristol.

Following 34 school budget defeats across the state on Town Meeting Day, the most since 2003, Gov. Peter Shumlin displayed an uncharacteristically tin ear Wednesday by suggesting school budgets woes rested in the hands of local residents.

Guest editorial: Having skin in the game

Posted on February 17, 2014 |
By William J. Mathis



This week’s writer is William J. Mathis, managing director of the National Education Policy Center and a Goshen resident. He served as a Vermont superintendent of schools and taught education finance at the University of Vermont.

The school funding debate is particularly toasty this town meeting season. With some reason! Most observers agree that our per pupil education costs are among the highest in the nation. When compared to inflation or portion of the gross state product, however, the increases are much more modest.

Peter Burrows: Schools need educational balance

Posted on January 31, 2014 |
By Peter Burrows



In the midst of the current educational landscape, the number of reform issues is overwhelming. As new educational leaders enter the field, they find themselves struggling to know who to listen to and where to put their limited leadership capital. Am I pro-Common Core or a charter school proponent? Is this the year to focus on assessment or whole child? In education, we’ve been drifting along for quite some time shoring our rafts to large ideas that have risen to prominence and receded from view in disturbingly short windows of time.
