What would truly adequate funding look like at the state and local level? And if we could get more money, how can we ensure that any new local or state funds are spent effectively by districts and focused on the schools/students that need it most?
Join us for a conversation with a panel of experts on school funding and equity as they explore these questions along with questions and ideas from our audience.
* Jennifer Imazeki, professor of economics, director of the San Diego State University's Center for Teaching & Learning and author of a report on funding adequacy for the Getting Down to Facts II research project.
* Kim Pattillo Brownson, vice president for policy and strategy, First 5 LA.
