Commissioners ask state to reconsider changes to BEP formula, seek delay

Six Knox County Commissioners today signed a note to Gov. Big Bill, pretty much asking him to reconsider that whole BEP funding thing that no one really understands that takes away almost $3 million in school funding.

The commissioners - Brad Anders, Amy Broyles, Jeff Ownby, Mike Brown, Mike Hammond and Ed Shouse - say that the change in how money is doled how should be delayed another year.

"We feel the current formula is unfair and holds us back from continuing to make progress in education," the note says.

Don't expect any changes. The state does whatever it wants and the governor is never wrong.
