Civic-minded organizations from across California are uniting to fight for our students, our public school system, and our shared future. The organizations below have committed to the effort to increase California’s per-student funding to the national average by 2020 and to the average of the top 10 states by 2025. They recognize that every public school student – regardless of background – deserves a high-quality education that prepares them for success in college, career, and civic life. They also know that the State has to invest more resources to achieve that goal, to deliver on its obligations to today’s students, and to create a brighter tomorrow for the next generation of Californians.
