School Finance Reform
Margaret Weston

November 2010

California’s school finance system is widely believed to be inequitable, inadequately funded, and overly complex. But the state can significantly improve the way it funds public schools by making small investments over time. This report provides an overview of the system’s current challenges, offers five straightforward principles for reform, and outlines a new direction for the state’s school finance system.

This report was supported with funding from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
