House democrats are hoping for a more thorough and public conversation about education funding in the upcoming session.
Rep. Harriet Drummond — a Democrat from Anchorage — said she’d like to see the issue of education funding, particularly a bill aimed at increasing the base student allocation (BSA), be dealt with during the first two weeks of the session.
“I’d call attention to it and get people to sit up and take notice,” Drummond said. “I can see that we waited too long last year.”
