LA Legislature Rejects BESSIE Spending Plan

The state board of education, known as BESSIE, goes back to the drawing board for allotting funds to public schools. The legislature rejected the board’s first allotment.

The board of elementary and secondary education has approved a new formula for handing out public funds. It’s around three billion dollars, which represents a 100 million more than last year.

This latest plan for spending the money will be heard by a senate committee Thursday.
