California Reaches Milestone

Written By: Mike Antonucci - Dec• 27•12

Yesterday California Gov. Jerry Brown proposed a new funding system for the state’s schools. It is, by my unofficial count, the 5,000th proposal for a new funding system for the state’s schools.

Think I’m exaggerating? I’m old enough to remember the “education summit” put on by another Brown – then-Assembly Speaker Willie – in February 1994. All of the state’s special interests got together for two days at the swanky Westin St. Francis in San Francisco, spent about $300,000, and accomplished nothing.

At least when the governor tries to reform the school system, he doesn’t have it catered.
