California's New School Finance Law.
Lindman, Erick L.
Following a touch-and-go struggle in the California legislature, a school finance reform law, known as the Property Tax Relief Act of 1972, was passed. The contents of this act were affected in part by the California Supreme Court decision--Serrano vs Priest. The new law includes boosts in foundation programs, expressed in dollar amounts per pupil (ADA); and two new categorical aid programs. One program is designed to improve early childhood education and the other is drafted to aid educationally disadvantaged children. This report discusses the Act and examines its effects on educational finance in California. (Author/JF)
