Share story

It ended up being a pretty good day for school districts that had ballot questions before voters Tuesday.

About a third of all school districts in Minnesota had decided to put referenda on the ballot. They were asking voters to either maintain or increase the amount of funds that come from local sources.  And of all those questions that were out there, 70-percent were approved.  

Education reporter Tom Weber discussed the results with Morning Edition host Cathy Wurzer.
