Elections have a major impact on California education. Voters have passed ballot measures such as Proposition 98, which set the level of state education funding, and Proposition 227, which banned bilingual education. Voters also elect the state superintendent of public instruction and local school board members for the state‚Äôs nearly 1,000 districts. Governors have often set out to change the state’s education system.
