Long Island school officials are expressing concern that increased funding to New York City schools will reduce the amount of state aid the Island will receive.
South Country Board of Education member Debbie Felber says she is disappointed and disgusted with a state Court of Appeals decision to give New York City public schools up to $5.6 billion in state funding. Felber says Long Island schools are already being shortchanged and fears the ruling could cause reductions in local aid.
Assemblywoman Patricia Eddington (D-Patchogue) says children across the state deserve proper funding and adds that the city?s money will not come from funding designated for Long Island.
