Indianapolis Public Schools are asking the city for an additional $1 billion in tax dollars over the next eight years, but with good reason: “We spend a lot time on this board trying to create the right conditions to bring transformative educational experiences to all the children and families we serve. We’ve laid a good foundation. It’s time to invest in that plan,” said IPS board chair Mary Ann Sullivan.

In other words, they’ve spent a lot of time and effort making a school system that works, and the additional dollars are needed to keep going.  Although individual increases will vary depending on home value, the median increase to Indianapolis residents is $30 a month.
