Any push toward more funding of education I am against. They have enough just deal with it.

California ranks near the botton (35th-40th depending on how you measure it) in per-pupil spending. Unsurprisingly, before prop-13 passed, they were #1 and ranked #1 for education.

Adjusted for the cost of education, CA is now dead last in per-pupil spending.

The state fucked its future and its inevitable long-term fiscal decline is already baked in. Everybody with kids who isn't a multi-millionaire is fleeing the state.
