The foundation budget doesn't need reform "in combination" with anything

Here we go; this just in via State House News (which, sorry, is paywalled...I'll post a different link if there is one):
"In tomorrow's inaugural address Governor Baker will focus on education, discussing the administration's plan to update the Chapter 70 formula in combination with reforms to improve underperforming schools," Baker communications director Lizzy Guyton said in a statement Wednesday evening.
So-called "underperforming schools" have already been through multiple rounds of "reforms to improve" and there has been a SINGLE foundation budget creation, with no substantive updates.

Don't fall for this one. The Foundation Budget Review Commission made it clear that this funding is already owed districts. They don't get more on this one.
