The California State Legislature took a bold step to address historic inequities in our education system when it passed the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) in 2013. The law sought to make funding more equitable and also aimed to increase local control based on the premise that budgeting decisions are best made at the local level in partnership with community partners, who must, in turn, hold districts accountable.
Recent research from Policy Analysis for California Education, the Public Policy Institute of California, and the University of California, Berkeley Graduate School of Education has provided important insight into whether the LCFF is meeting its goal of improving equity in education and how it can be further refined to improve equitable funding, opportunities, and outcomes in California.
Come join California State Senator Anna Caballero along with Children Now, Education Trust-West, Parent Revolution, Teach Plus, and PACE for a webinar exploring this important research.
Featured speakers include:
- Senator Anna Caballero, California State Senate
- Carrie Hahnel, Senior Policy and Research Fellow, PACE
