Survey: California Parents Want Stake In Spending New Education Funding

Karla Scoon Reid writes at the Education Week (12/10) “K-12 Parents and the Public” blog that a new survey from EdSource indicates that while most parents in California “have little knowledge about the state’s new funding law,” most “want to assist with local plans to determine how those education dollars are spent.” The piece notes that districts are required to involve parents in “planning and implementation” of the new school funding formula.
