Governor’s Budget Supports Education

Governor Brown’s proposed budget for 2013-14 is a positive sign for public schools in California. Department of Finance spokesperson Nick Swietzer says the plan includes a more transparent funding process that includes money to support students most in need. The base amount per student will increase by approximately 1500 dollars per student over this year and then additional funding is added for other programs.

Flexibility of how that additional  money is used rests with the individual school districts.
The budget also includes additional funding for low income and english learner students.

The proposed  budget now goes into the Assembly and Senate for negotiations witha revision presented by the Governor to be presented in May.
