About the Program
We are thrilled to announce our first live event back together, in person.
Funding for California’s K–12 public schools has reached record highs, but gaps in student outcomes remain. Understanding the benefits of additional funds and how to distribute those funds are key concerns for policymakers. Join PPIC researcher Julien Lafortune for an in-person briefing on the extent to which higher spending improves outcomes such as test scores and graduation rates.
This event and report are funded by the Dirk and Charlene Kabcenell Foundation and the Stuart Foundation.
