Pathways for School Finance in California

Jon Sonstelie, Heather Rose, and Margaret Weston

To illustrate the possibilities, this report models a variety of potential improvements. Relying on five straightforward principles for reform, the authors show how small investments over time can help the system become more equitable and transparent.
