Jerry Brown Proposes Giving Poor Districts More Money

Huck/Konopacki Labor Cartoons
California Gov. Jerry Brown is proposing changing the way schools are funded so that districts with higher proportions of low income students and English learners would receive more money than affluent schools. Under the proposal, districts in which 90% of students are either low income or English learners (such as Los Angeles and Long Beach) would receive $3,000 more per student than districts with only 20% disadvantaged students.
