About the Program

To address COVID-19 disruptions to education, federal and state programs directed billions in stimulus aid to K–12 schools, targeting greater funding to lower-income and high-need districts. PPIC researcher Julien Lafortune will present findings from a report that examines California’s funding allocations and key areas of district spending; coauthor Bruce Fuller, a professor of education and public policy at UC Berkeley, will lead a panel discussion on district strategies for learning recovery.

This event is supported with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Dirk and Charlene Kabcenell Foundation, the Stuart Foundation, and the US Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences.
