Proposed State Budget Doesn't Do Enough for Kids
Children Now
The Administration's January proposal for the 2015-16 state budget does not do enough for California's top priority--the children. The failure to fund new preschool slots breaks last year's commitment to provide access to quality preschool for every low-income 4-year-old. The proposal also misses opportunities to fully support and improve access to children's health and child welfare programs. Positive investments in education were made possible by Proposition 30 and the Governor's fiscal stewardship, but districts need additional one-time dollars--beyond those needed to pay for state mandates--to invest in Common Core and the Next Generation Science Standards. This article details how the state budget proposal impacts the children.
