The recent proposal from the Governor’s Committee, if adopted, would change how California funds its schools in important ways, by consolidating a large number of current K-12 revenue programs into just two. Such a shift would require fundamental changes: the state would have to transfer its revenue authority to local school districts and would have to allocate a larger share of K-12 revenues to districts with high proportions of disadvantaged students. Using a budget simulation, this report examines the effects of the proposal and variations, comparing the revenue that school districts would have received under the committee’s plan with the revenue that districts actually received in 2004-2005 from programs the plan would eliminate. Lunch will be provided.
