After not receiving a single categorical payment for FY17, the Taylorville School Board is fed up with the state. The board unanimously decided to sue the State Board of Education because of their lack of funding, and their continued rulings for schools who are already struggling.
Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau, Superintendent of Taylorville Schools, said the state is failing their schools because they can't get things done and move the budget process forward.
Fuerstenau said, they aren't upset because more standards are being placed on the schools, they're upset and taking action because more standards are required from the schools with no additional funding to support them.
Fuerstenau appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
