Title:The cruel divide: How California's education finance system shortchanges its poorest school districts
Organization:Education Trust
Short Description:California has become a landscape of educational contrasts. Stepping through the doors of a school in an impoverished community, you find dozens of students packed together into classrooms without the support services or additional instructional time they need to succeed. A zip code away, in a neighboring district, you can find students with access to a multitude of educational supports and enrichment programs.
Annotation:California has become a landscape of educational contrasts. Stepping through the doors of a school in an impoverished community, you find dozens of students packed together into classrooms without the support services or additional instructional time they need to succeed. A zip code away, in a neighboring district, you can find students with access to a multitude of educational supports and enrichment programs. This cruel divide is the result of an education funding system that is fundamentally unfair. Not only has California failed to adequately fund its schools, our state has also failed to equitably allocate existing education funding.
