State lawmakers in South Dakota are forming a study committee to look at long-term revenue sources and funding formulas for the state's public schools. State law requires funding increases each year that are equal to the level of inflation, up to 3%, but the aid remained flat in 2010 and fell in 2011 during a down economy. "We're hopeful a big part of the discussion is revenue sources for schools. Not just rearranging the pie, but are there other revenue sources for schools," said Wade Pogany, executive director of the Associated School Boards of South Dakota.
