Paper Praises California Governor's Plan As Way To End Chronic Layoffs

An editorial in the Marin Independent Journal (3/26) laments the policy of many school districts in California to issue teachers pink slips every year, because they "are required to adopt preliminary budgets for the coming school year months before knowing for sure how much money they can count on from the state. With the state's annual budget crisis and political gridlock holding the adoption of a state budget hostage, local school budgets are often based on a best guess. ... This year, much depends on passage of Gov. Jerry Brown's sales tax plan" which is dedicated to "stabilizing" education funding.
