School Financial Emergency

Reports to the education community and the public on the need to restore funding to California's public schools.

On January 10, 2013, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson issued a new assessment of the state of California’s public school system, two years after he declared a State of Financial Emergency as a result of $22 billion in cuts:

"The Governor's budget proposal keeps the promise we made to Californians who supported Proposition 30, and wisely begins to restore some of what our schools have lost. It will take years to bring our education system back to financial health, and I applaud the Governor for beginning that work in earnest."

Tom Torlakson, State Superintendent of Public Instruction
