SACRAMENTO – Gov. Jerry Brown is using his revised budget plan to call for changes to the way public schools are funded. He released the plan Tuesday morning.
Brown wants to use much of the surge in 2013 tax revenue to funnel $2.9 billion to K-12 public schools and community colleges, as called for by Proposition 98.
Brown also wants to send more money to districts with lower-income children or students who are learning English.
