CTA President Dean Vogel issued a statement to the media today praising the historic school funding formula agreement in the Legislature.
Here is an excerpt:“We are extremely encouraged by the historic state budget agreement in Sacramento to overhaul education funding for K-12 schools. Thanks to the hard work of educators and parents to pass Proposition 30, the new spending plan provides all schools with more resources, begins repaying schools the money they are owed from years of budget cuts, recognizes the need for smaller class sizes and helps meet the needs of school districts serving at-risk students. As school doors close for the year this month, new doors are opening with the new funding plan.”
