California spends significantly less per student than most other states, with Black and Latino students disproportionately affected, according to a report released July 22 by the Century Foundation, a progressive think tank. The study found that California spends about $6,000 less per pupil than the national average. It also found that four of the country’s 10 districts with the largest funding gaps per pupil are in California and are majority Latinx: Fresno ($13,224 gap), Compton ($13,196), San Bernardino ($13,023), and Santa Ana ($12,937).
