California BOE Begins Shaping New Education Funding System

Andrew Ujifusa writes at the Education Week (11/14) “State EdWatch” blog that in the wake of the “fundamentally new plan” for K-12 funding enacted by the California legislature earlier this year, the responsibility for setting up new less restrictive regulations for spending falls to the state Board of Education. The BOE met last week to review “a draft of regulations governing the local-control formula.” He continues to describe the three options that districts will have for “spending these ‘targeted’ state funds.”
