California educators, politicians have stark reaction to Gov. Jerry Brown school funding revamp (SB Sun)

January 3, 2013 – School districts that have long struggled to educate large numbers of poor students or English learners could see a massive influx of cash under a new funding formula expected to be unveiled next week by Gov. Jerry Brown. Public school districts receive the bulk of their funding from the state, mostly in the form of a flat fee based on student attendance. Brown’s proposed budget for the 2013-14 budget year, which begins July 1, is expected to include a weighted formula that would pay more for students in districts with high numbers of poor students or students who don’t speak English at home.
