This week, John Fensterwald and Louis Freedberg discuss the financial outlook for education in Gov. Jerry Brown’s final state budget, which the Legislature approved this week.
There’s enough money to reach the goal Brown set for his K-12 funding formula and forgo tuition increases for Cal State and UC. Why, with so much new money, aren’t more school districts feeling flush? In an interview, Edgar Zazueta of the Association of California School Administrators, offers an answer.
Louis and John also speak with Tom Armelino, new executive director of the agency overseeing school improvement, the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence.
