Mayor Martin J. Walsh says Boston is not getting enough state aid to pay for public schools under a budget proposal unveiled last month by Governor Charlie Baker.
“Funding for education is not working for the City of Boston right now,” Walsh said Tuesday. “It’s rising to a crisis level.”
Under the spending plan proposed by Baker, the city would rely heavily on property tax revenue — not state aid — to pay for public schools, Walsh said. The city also would not receive the $27 million it says it is due in reimbursement payments for charter school tuition, according to Walsh.
Baker’s plan is likely to be amended in the coming months as Beacon Hill lawmakers revise his proposal. The new fiscal year begins July 1.
