Spencer Valley School Board Supports Full and Fair Funding of CA Public Schools

Spencer Valley School Board adopts Resolution Calling for Full and Fair Funding of California's Public Schools

At the Board meeting on March 14, 2018, the Spencer Valley School Board adopted a Resolution Calling for Full and Fair Funding of California's Public Schools

Full and Fair Funding is funding that provides access, resources and supports needed to provide a high-quality education for all public school students.  Currently, California ranks 41st nationally in per-pupil funding at nearly $2,000 per student below the national average and nearly $7,000 per student below the average of the top 10 states.

California has the world's sixth largest economy and the highest Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of any state. Yet, four out of every five states provide more funding for schools on a per-pupil basis than California.  Overall, California ranks 45th in the percentage of taxable income spent on K-12 education.  California prides itself on being the home of American innovation.  If other poorer states can find a way to prioritize education, we can too.
