Most 2018 teacher protests led to big boosts in funding, but not enough to make up for earlier cuts


Alex Flynn • New York Times

A statewide teachers strike in Oklahoma in 2018 led lawmakers to increase general education funding by 19 percent.

Teacher protests in 2018 helped lead to a big boost in education funding in four states, but a new report said it wasn't enough to make up for earlier cuts. In those states and more than a dozen others, state spending on general education is still less than before the 2008 Great Recession.

And the report, issued Wednesday by the nonprofit, nonpartisan Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, said most of the places that increased general education funding did it in ways that are not sustainable.
