OPINION: California has an astounding surplus – almost $100 billion – yet Gov. Newsom’s Administration proposed a K-12 budget that does not fund all students equally. It shortchanges and discriminates against over 200,000 students who attend nonclassroom-based public charter schools by intentionally excluding them from hold harmless provisions.

PPIC: One year after the state’s schools halted in-person learning due to COVID-19, more than eight in ten Californians think children are falling behind academically during the pandemic. Most Californians approve of how Gov. Newsom is handling the state’s K–12 public education system, though six in ten are concerned that California’s K–12 schools will not be open for full-time in-person instruction this fall.
