Description/Abstract: Gov. George Pataki's education reform commission Monday called for a simpler state school aid formula, more accountability and $2.5billion to $5.6 billion more for public schools over the next five years. It urged that additional state aid go mainly to districts with poor students, but recommended that no district receive less state aid than it did the previous year. And it proposed eliminating tenure for principals and administrators and replacing it with renewable three- to five-year contracts.
