The March 3  primary ballot in California includes a $15 billion state bond measure intended  to help schools, community colleges and universities with construction and modernization costs for their facilities.

It is confusingly titled Proposition 13 — but it has nothing to do with Prop. 13, the tax cutting measure approved by voters in 1978.

As a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization EdSource takes no position on the ballot measure. To read different views on the issue, scroll down for perspectives from proponents and opponents of the bond measure. We will be posting additional perspectives on this topic in the coming week.
