Targeted K–12 Funding and Student Outcomes

Virtual Event

October 7, 2021 · 11:00 am - 11:45 am


About the Program

As students return to the classroom, record-high funding through the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) will help California districts address gaps after a year of remote learning. PPIC researcher Julien Lafortune will present findings from a new report that examines school and district spending against trends in student outcomes, offering insight into whether the LCFF is meeting its goal of improving equity in education.

This research and event are supported with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Stuart Foundation.
