HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. -- Northern Kentucky University has argued for years that its students and teachers don't get their share of state education dollars.

Gov. Matt Bevin plans to create a new formula that rewards schools for high graduation rates, student retention and enrolling a lot of majors in STEM fields -- science, technology, engineering and mathematics. NKU President Geoffrey Mearns has been pushing for that kind of spending formula, known as outcomes-based funding, for years.
