Voters expecting tangible benefits from the passage of Proposition 30 may be disappointed. In an interview on KQED’s The California Report, EdSource Senior Reporter Kathryn Baron explains how much money the Proposition is expected to raise and how those funds are likely to be used.

Put simply, the funds from Prop. 30 will allow schools to “stay where they are,” says Baron. While schools won’t have to make further cuts to the school year, which was the expected reaction if Prop. 30 did not pass, they probably won’t be able reinstate previously cut programs either.

We need your help ...

Unlike many news outlets, EdSource does not secure its content behind a paywall. We believe that informing the largest possible audience about what is working in education — and what isn't — is far more important.

Once a year, however, we ask our readers to contribute as generously as they can so that we can do justice to reporting on a topic as vast and complex as California's education system — from early education to postsecondary success.

Thanks to support from several philanthropic foundations, EdSource is participating in NewsMatch. As a result, your tax-deductible gift to EdSource will be worth three times as much to us — and allow us to do more hard hitting, high-impact reporting that makes a difference. Don’t wait.
