Reference Materials A Closer Look At The State Of Education In California.
SchoolsRules believes that every student in Marin should have access to quality education. The American Human Development Project agrees, tracking Access to Knowledge as a key component of human development. For details on their analysis of education in Marin's diverse communities, review pages 32 through 41 of the ADHP's 2012 Human Development here.
The gap between what it takes to provide a quality education and what the state provides is growing. Yet, California is spending less on education every year. The California Budget Project provides an in-depth look at California's spending in comparison to the rest of the US. The analysis, titled School Finance Facts, can be found here.
