JUNEAU- Gov. Sean Parnell's education proposal would increase the per-pupil funding formula by about $200 over current levels over the next three years.

Parnell proposes raising the base student allocation from $5,680 to $5,765 the first year. It would go to $5,823 the following year, and $5,881 the year after.
The increase is part of an overall education proposal introduced Friday that includes changes that Parnell said are aimed at giving kids more opportunities and parents more choice in options in where to send their kids to school.
