In 2014, the California Legislature passed Assembly Bill 1469 requiring teachers and school districts, along with the state government to substantially increase their respective contributions to the California State Teachers' Retirement System (CalSTRS). The state has accrued significant pension debt for an extended time totaling approximately $107 billion, and there is no short-term solution to solving this problem, with projections indicating higher contribution rates will be required through the year 2046.

Public school funding is a complex but vital area of interest in California. In this seminar, the challenges of financing public education are highlighted in two areas: funding for facility maintenance and modernization, and special education for students with disabilities. California’s vast inventory of current public school facilities vary widely in age and condition, and estimates for California’s public school facility maintenance and modernization over the next ten years top $100 billion.

Once a national leader in early childhood education, California faces unique challenges in addressing the educational and developmental needs of the nearly 24 million children ages five and younger. Compared to the rest of the United States, twice as many of these children live in families without a parent fluent in English, and an additional one in five live in poverty. Providing these students and families with high-quality preschool lays the foundation for future learning and is shown to improve academic and life outcomes.
