Proposition 38 for Local Schools

Today, our state ranks 46th nationally in what we invest to educate each student. California also ranks dead last, 50th out of 50 states, with the largest class sizes in the nation. Recent budget cuts are putting our schools even farther behind. We owe it to our children and to ourselves to improve our children’s education.

Proposition 38, The “Our Children, Our Future: The Education Initiative” will:

  • Invest in our schools and early education to prepare our children to succeed and make a better future for our economy and our state
  • Create a new, dedicated source of per pupil funding that will go directly to local public schools, including charter schools, with no interference from Sacramento. Provide funding for early childhood development and child care programs 
  • Establish tough new accountability, oversight and public disclosure requirements
