California’s education funding is at a record high. So why are schools short on cash?

There may be no greater paradox in California government these days than the fiscal health of the state’s public schools. Education funding is almost certain to hit a record high when a new state budget is enacted next month, and yet local school districts are hitting the panic button when it comes to their finances.

That both things are true is a function of the complicated way the state funds education and the cost pressures that appear to be the new normal — especially worrisome because there’s compelling evidence that the status quo is unsustainable.

“There’s not a district in the state that’s not experiencing this,” said Kevin Gordon, a longtime education lobbyist. “It’s just so counterintuitive in a growing economy.”

It’s important to first understand how schools are funded. Most districts receive a combination of local, state and federal dollars. California, more than other states, relies on statewide tax

Highlighting Strategies for Student Success

Within five days of school closure in March, Pajaro Valley Unified in Watsonville successfully implemented distance learning that included distributing 15,000 Chromebooks and 1,000 hot spots so that all 20,000 students had a device.

In this webinar, Supt. Michelle Rodriguez and Rolling Hills Middle School Principal Ivan Alcaraz speak to EdSource’s John Fensterwald about how the district has provided social and emotional supports to students and staff during this transition, their preparations for the fall and their plans to help the students farthest behind get a jump-start on the new year.

Controversial sex education framework for California approved despite protest

California education officials have agreed on a sweeping new framework for sex education in the classroom, sparking intense debate about whether some of the proposal’s teacher material is too graphic and explicit.

The guidance is meant for students in kindergarten through 12th grade, and though not a mandate, is intended to provide teachers with information to use in a sex education curriculum. The updated Health Education Curriculum Framework includes the suggested use of gender-neutral and LGBTQ-inclusive language, material on consent and sex-trafficking and the continued teaching of HIV prevention, which was enacted into law under the California Healthy Youth Act in 2016.

The framework also includes guidance on nutrition and physical activity, tobacco and alcohol and skin care.

“There’s a lot of social and emotional learning embedded throughout,” said Stephanie Gregson, director of the Curriculum Frameworks and Instructional Resources Division at the California Department of Education.

But it’s the portion

I want to get all of your opinions on this because it’s not being talked about at all online as far as I can tell:

I’m an incoming freshman for the University of Iowa this fall. Iowa just announced that they will be transitioning to online learning after Thanksgiving and, among other regulations, will be mandating six feet of distance for all students, faculty, and staff from the start of the semester through the end. It’s not clear how pervasive the six-foot rule is, but the tone seems to indicate it’ll be close to all-encompassing.

I am a complete believer in science and public health and safety experts, however I know enough about psychology and college to know that forming any kind of relationship (whether they be friendships or romantic ones) without close physical proximity and even contact is almost impossible.

Relationships are the lifeblood of, well, life. They’re also
