Today, the Californians for Quality Schools campaign announced Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom has endorsed the Kindergarten Through Community College Public Education Facilities Bond Act of 2016, the $9 billion state school facilities bond that will appear on the November 2016 ballot.
“The lack of equal opportunity in a student’s educational experience has serious consequences for both the individual student and our state’s economic future. We know that a strong, equitable public education system is a powerful factor in children’s lives, which is why I’m supporting the state school facility bond that ensures every district is able to access funds to create modern 21st Century schools,” said Lt. Governor Newsom. “Every teacher and student needs and deserves a high quality teaching and learning environment that will help students thrive. Passing the bond in November will be a significant step towards that goal.”
