The article discusses the plans of U.S. Representative Michael Merrifield of introducing a legislation requiring the state's school districts to spend 75 percent of operating funds in the classroom, including food service and salaries for principals and counselors. The initiative was supported by Colorado Republican Governor Bill Owens, which also stated that the approval of the measure frees up an additional $485 million of funding for classroom costs.
