California voters value education and the benefits it provides to our children, our future. That’s why voters in 1988 approve Proposition 98 which amended the California Constitution to mandate a minimum level of 39 percent of the state’s budget be directed towards education.

Today, California spends $23,000 per student in California from Kindergarten to 12th grade.

In a typical classroom of 30 students, this equates to $690,000 spent annually to educate that class.

However, the average teachers salary in California is $86,000 which leaves $604,000 not getting to the classroom.

Question is where did the $604,000 per classroom go?

Not to the teacher’s salaries. Not to teacher’s aides. Not to the student resources for a better education.
