K-12 Education

Sen. Favola is working to ensure that many cuts proposed by the Governor in the K-12 education budget are not implemented. The Governor's budget is short-changing our kids by proposing to eliminate so called "cost-to-compete" money for our local school districts. This fund allows our localities to keep the best and the brightest school personnel here in Virginia, instead of losing them to higher paying states. This amounts to a nearly 65 million dollar cut to Northern Virginia schools alone.
