Building Better Schools

12:30 p.m. | Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Our schools are critical pieces of social infrastructure, and last November voters approved a $9 billion statewide bond, as well as many local bonds, to invest in the improvement and construction of schools and community colleges. With chronic underinvestment exposing millions of students to substandard buildings and health and safety risks, this funding is vital for our education system. Learn how the funding will improve our state’s schools and which investments local districts are planning next.
