With the economy in decline and millions out of work, funding for education—which is heavily dependent on personal and corporate earnings and spending—is expected to be significantly reduced in 2020-21. California’s per pupil spending is already well below the national average, and this financial impact will come at a time when our schools need more money, not less, to serve our state’s children and youth. The goal of this webinar is to build understanding about the challenges to come and suggest how state and local policy can mitigate the impact on teaching and learning.
