Important Advocacy & Legislation News:

 

California is home to 6.2 million school children and educates one in eight children in the country. California students also exemplify the rich diversity of our country. As such, our students’ success is not only critical to California’s future, but to the future of our nation. That future depends on all students, no matter who they are or what their circumstance, reaching their full potential so they can graduate high school ready for college and the careers of tomorrow – and to live, work, engage civically and thrive in a multicultural, multilingual, and highly connected world.

 

A continued investment in California’s public school students and a continued investment of time and resources to fully implement the LCFF, LCAP, Dashboard and other components of the continuous improvement system are essential. The state’s vision for all students to graduate ready for college, careers and life requires greater resources. While per-student funding has steadily increased since the depths of the Great Recession, California still ranks below the national average in funding, despite the greater needs of many of our students. This means that California’s schools have fewer staff to provide instruction and support. The state ranks near the bottom of all states in crucial categories, such as the number of students per teacher, as well as student-administrator, student-counselor, and student-librarian ratios.
