Funding Public Education (in Worcester)

Not one, but TWO upcoming presentations from the Worcester Regional Research Bureau:

Funding Public Education 
Each year, the Commonwealth calculates a Foundation Budget that establishes minimal levels of education funding in individual cities and towns across Massachusetts. Simultaneously, local officials work to identify and allocate funds for public schools.
