Gov. Doug Ducey is counting on rank-and-file lawmakers to restore some cuts in public school funding — cuts that are in the budget deal he negotiated with Republican legislative leaders.

There are signs that’s going to happen.

A tentative agreement being negotiated late Thursday would reverse a decision, made last year, by lawmakers to change how the state calculates aid to schools. The result, if a compromise is reached, would be to restore money that schools would have lost in the state budget agreement announced earlier this week.
