Large and small school districts in Nebraska are divided over how the state's funding for education should be divided. Supporters on both sides are backing separate bills in the state Legislature. Under one bill, supported by larger districts, state funding for education would be reduced, but the funding formula would be altered to provide more funds for districts with at-risk populations, high tax levies and lower spending. A separate bill would allow for increases in tax levies for those districts seeking to qualify for state aid and also would limit budget growth.
