Over the last decade, K?12 education funding and performance levels have become increasingly important concerns for Californians. By way of response, the state legislature recently opted to include K?12 education in what used to be the California Master Plan for Higher Education. The joint committee to create the new Master Plan assembled working groups of educators, researchers, and policymakers to address a range of issues. It then collected the reports of those working groups, heard testimony, and finished its final report in August 2002. The first piece of legislation emerging from the committee's work was passed in September 2002. AB 2217 called for the formation of a Quality Education Commission and charged it with developing a Quality Education Model. The model should consist of school prototypes with resources such that the vast majority of California's students could meet the state?s academic standards.
