Dayton pushing hard for 'emergency' school funding. But will he get it?

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton lately is all about an “emergency” funding plan for public schools running deficits these days.

He’s on a bully-pulpit kick, urging Republican lawmakers to change course late in the legislative session and spend $138 million to shore up school budgets to reduce the likelihood of teacher layoffs or larger class sizes. He wants the GOP-controlled Legislature to authorize the money instead of planned tax breaks.
