MOVING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION

Long term, transportation funding is school funding

By The News Tribune editorial board

"Children before concrete" is one of the catchphrases of people who've been fighting transportation funding in the Legislature.

It's a false choice. Smart investments in highway and transit infrastructure don't steal money from schools and social welfare programs. They create jobs and expand the economy, helping pay for public services that benefit children and everyone else.

The 2015 Legislature will rightly focus on increasing public school funding, as mandated by the state Supreme Court's 2012 McCleary decision. But this shouldn't mean stiffing the state's infrastructure needs. It's not an either-or dilemma: Further investment in transportation is needed to fully fund public education over the long haul.
