“The way public schools are funded in the United States is complex,” Superintendent Dr. Philip G. Downs says. “In fact, it could be argued that it is so complex that we are encouraged to be uninformed. The purpose of these meetings is to examine various ways schools have been funded and the tradeoffs of each. The School Board and Administration of Southwest Allen County Schools recognizes the complexity and knows that input from the people living in the district is essential to successful schools.”
