Despite recent improvements in California’s economy and public dollars flowing back to public education, California still remains one of the lowest funding states in the nation in per capita spending for public education.

 

Learn more about the in’s and out’s of public education funding in California.  Ask questions.  Learn how you can get involved.

 

Join us for a facilitated discussion with leaders in this field including: 

  • Carol Kocivar, past President of the California State PTA, has been involved in campaigns to improve education funding at both the state and local levels for over twenty years.
  • Nancy Krop, past Director of Legislation for the Sixth District PTA, advocates to restore public schools to the top performing, top funded schools California enjoyed a generation ago.
  • Phil Ting, Assemblyman 19th District, was a leader in the effort to change how K-12 schools are funded, through what is now called the Local Control Funding Formula.
