SACRAMENTO—State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson today issued the following statement regarding Governor Jerry Brown’s State of the State Address:
“As Governor Brown made clear, California is poised for a tremendous leap forward, and nowhere is that more the case than in public education. The Local Control Funding Formula is by its nature a major victory for our students and their schools. It pushes decision-making closer to those students and their parents. It measures outcomes instead of whether the right dollars were put into the right categorical boxes.
