Money is a big challenge for schools in California, including ours. I'm writing to share lessons with you from Ed100.org related to school funding. These lessons can help answer many important questions like these: Why are parents still asked to raise money to pay for basic public school programs? Hasn’t the school funding crisis been solved?
The California State PTA is working with Ed100.org to help create better-informed school communities. The lessons linked below each take about five minutes to read, and they are available in both English and Spanish. By learning together, we will have more fun, learn more, and have a much bigger chance of turning insights into actions for our school.
