With more money to spend, California Gov. Brown launches K-12 funding reform (EdSource)

January 11, 2013 – Gov. Jerry Brown proposed an unfamiliar budget for public education in the state this week – one with actual increases. His 2013-14 spending plan for K-12 schools includes a revision of his plan to reform the state’s convoluted, inequitable school finance system that  lawmakers and a coalition of education groups rejected last year. Passing it would be a priority, Brown said. Brown wants to increase overall spending for K-12 and community colleges in the 2013-14 fiscal year by 5 percent: $2.7 billion, which translates to $337 per student. Total spending would rise to $56.2 billion next year.
