In his 2019 budget proposal, Gov. Charlie Baker allotted over $4.8 billion for education, the highest amount of education funding ever in Massachusetts.

However, not all are celebrating what Baker views as a historic accomplishment. State Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz says the aid promised by Baker is "just plain inadequate for the job" and the governor's budget is not keeping up with inflation.
