In regards to the Gazette opinion of Sept., 20, “State formula shortchanges big-school students”. Montana's school-funding formula allows one basic entitlement per school district and a per-student entitlement that depends on the number of students enrolled. If the basic entitlement were formulated according to how many teachers are employed, the larger school districts, including the Billings schools, might be funded more equitably.
