Statement on the May Budget Revision from CSBA President Dr. Emma Turner
SACRAMENTO, Calif., (May 9, 2019) – “We’re encouraged that Gov. Newsom continues to identify and address some of the more pressing issues facing California public schools, such as special education, early learning, employer pension contributions, and teacher recruitment, training, and retention. In his first budget, the Governor has made significant progress toward providing the resources needed to give all students a high-quality education. In the coming months, we look forward to partnering with the Governor to accelerate this work and secure the investment needed to lift California from the bottom of the national rankings in per-pupil funding and into the top 10.”
