What the election results mean for public education

Nov 29, 2012

This past election, San Franciscans voted on 18 state and local ballot initiatives. Arguably the biggest winner was public education.

On the state level, voters approved Proposition 30, which was a tax increase to fund K-12 programs and community colleges across the state. San Franciscans passed local Proposition A, establishing a more secure financial footing for City College.

KALW’s education reporter, Jen Chien, reports on how these measures will be rolled out and what their impact on public education will likely be.
