New funding law puts focus on translation for non-English speakers
School districts with high concentrations of English learner students are facing a new challenge in ensuring that parents who need language translation are informed of their role under the funding formula for schools. California's new Local Control Funding Formula emphasizes the importance of parental involvement in guiding school spending decisions. Parent advocates and district employees alike say they see the new emphasis as an opportunity to expand and deepen the involvement of parents in ways that haven't happened before. Some parents, however, don't think the efforts are going far enough.
