From The Connecticut Mirror: Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has grown impatient waiting for small school districts to team up with nearby systems to conserve costs. He wants the state to significantly scale back the school aid it sends towns such as Canaan, which spends $22,450 for each of the 139 students it educates each year, the most expensive per-student spending in the state. The state sends $78.8 million each year to the 49 towns with fewer than 1,000 students. The Malloy administration says that $12.5 million of that is being sent to towns that are spending significantly more than what the state deems acceptable: $15,400 per student.
