Tell the State Legislature to raise funding for California public schools to the national average by 2020 and to the average of the top 10 states by 2025.

Despite boasting the fifth-largest economy in the world and the highest gross domestic product of any state, California sits near the bottom nationally in nearly every significant measure of school funding and school staffing.

Adjusted for cost of living, California ranks 41st in per-pupil funding, We're 45th in the percentage of taxable income spent on education, 45th in student-teacher ratios, and 48th in staff per student. That’s not good enough for our children, our state, or our future.

California is the home of innovation and opportunity — we’ve never been content with average. To meet the needs of 6.2 million public school students and prepare them for an increasingly competitive and complex world, we simply must do more. We must secure Full and Fair Funding for public schools.

Sign this petition and join the California School Boards Association (CSBA) and its partners in the fight to provide every California student with a high-quality education and the resources needed for success in college, career, and civic life.
