Description: Did you know that Connecticut distributes $2 billion annually towards Connecticut schools? They use a formula for distribution called the Education Cost Sharing (ECS) Formula. As with any use of resources that gives different amounts to different constituents, a key question math can help us think about is: Is this fair? There are multiple factors accounted for in the formula. Are there more factors that should be considered? Are different weights appropriate? Such questions help us explore CT’s current policies and reflect on school funding.
