School Beat: Election Results Could Mean a Brighter Future for Education

Lisa Schiffbyline‚ Nov. 15‚ 2012

California’s public education community has been breathing sighs of relief following the results of last week’s voting extravaganza. Not even considering the historic re-election of President Barak Obama and the related repudiation of the Republican Party’s effort to further restrict our civic and social rights, the results for California were immense. For our public schools, the most critical result was the passage of Proposition 30, which through leveraging a sales tax increase and raising income taxes on the wealthy will raise revenues to the General Fund and stop the automatic budget cuts to all levels of public education that were set to be enacted come January if Proposition 30 had not passed.
