SACRAMENTO (AP) — No California school will receive less money than it does currently under Gov. Jerry Brown's sweeping proposal to change how K-12 schools are funded.
Brown's finance department released funding estimates by school district on Wednesday. The figures offer more details about how the Democratic governor's budget plan would affect every school if lawmakers approve it.
Schools with high proportions of English learners, foster children and low-income students would receive additional grants under Brown's plan, which is available at the finance department's website, http://www.dof.ca.gov/reports_and_periodicals/district_estimate/view.php
For example, Los Angeles schools would receive $328 more per pupil next year under his proposal.
Brown says such a change is necessary to provide more help to low-income schools. Some lawmakers have expressed concern that wealthier districts could lose funding under his plan.
