California analyst says K-12 funding overhaul has merits
from The Sacramento Bee
The nonpartisan Legislative Analyst's Office says in a new report that California Gov. Jerry Brown's school funding overhaul has many strengths but questions the retention of some "irrational" relics from the current system that benefit powerful constituents. California for years has funded schools with a combination of general per-pupil dollars and earmarks dedicated for state-driven purposes. Brown wants to blow up the earmarks and create a new system that gives districts more control and directs more money to schools with impoverished students and English learners.
