Changes For Education On State Budget

Sacramento has enacted monetary changes for state schools and colleges.
CALIFORNIA—On Thursday, June 27, Governor Jerry Brown signed the state budget bill after negotiations with Democratic legislative leaders, including changes in funding for schools and colleges for the fiscal year beginning on the first of July.

 

Though in January he argued extensively in favor of expanding online education for the University of California and California State University systems, Gov. Brown vetoed his own proposed earmark of $20 million in funding for online education on Thursday morning. In line with the proposal, each higher learning system would receive $10 million tied to online education expansion efforts; the money will now instead be included in the annual portion distributed to the college systems. However, the $20 million will not be stipulated with the aforementioned online education efforts.

 

This turnaround on online education occurred only after Gov. Brown was assured of the higher learning institutions' resolve to pursue online options. At an event in Sacramento, he told reporters, “I had an agreement from both the segments that they would carry out online vigorously. As the leader of both governing boards, I'm actively engaged with both the University of California and the Cal State.”

 

Also among the new changes in education for California is the manner in which the state must fund its public schools. Gov. Brown signed into law a new funding formula that will provide a monetary boost to schools with low-income students and non-native English speakers. All school districts will now be free to define how they spend the funds received from the state.

 

In a Facebook post, the California governor wrote, “This is a good day for CA, it's a good day for school kids, and it's a good day for our future.”

 

The changes to public school funding is praised by both political parties of the state’s legislative chamber. The changes also mark the most dramatic overhaul of public school funding in 25 years.
