New California school funding formula gives more money to help low-income, ESL students
from The Huffington Post
After several decades without any major changes, the way California funds its schools is being completely revamped. Gov. Jerry Brown signed several new bills into law that will allocate more money to help disadvantaged students and give districts more control over how their money is distributed, according to the Associated Press. The bills replace California's previous school-funding system, which California Newswire describes as "overly complex, inefficient and inequitable."
