It’s been one year since legislators created a new school funding formula.

The formula gives equal funding to all schools, but critics say that’s unfair because schools with a lot of low incomes kids or students learning English need more money.

StateImpact Indiana’s Claire McInerny visited Goshen, Indiana, and found the district is scrambling to save its English Learning program in light of the funding cuts.
