The NDP Education Critic says the BC Government needs to recognize that the school funding formula needs to change.

Rob Fleming was in the Comox Valley this week to watch the school board vote on the possible closure of Puntledge Park.

He says districts across the province have been cutting their budgets for years and the funding problem is only getting worse.

Fleming says the province needs to finally acknowledge that the current funding formula is not sustainable and work with school districts to ensure students have the support and services they need.
