Rural Community Rallies For More Public School Funding

May 13, 2018

Educators in Farmersburg, Indiana, held a rally Saturday, urging lawmakers to give more attention to rural public schools, specifically when it comes to funding.

School money follows the student in Indiana, and the Northeast Sullivan School Corporation has lost a big chunk of per-pupil funding in the past eight years – around $4 million – largely due to students leaving the district for better funded schools with more resources available. The district already closed some schools, and others could follow.
