There is a public education funding crisis in California. California is the fifth-largest economy in the world, yet ranks 44th in the United States in per-pupil funding.
At LAUSD schools, this funding crisis has led to cutbacks to student programs and services, cuts to staff and work hours, and to larger class sizes. LAUSD needs a solution so we can start investing in students and good jobs again.
Measure EE will raise much-needed funds that will go directly to increase staffing and improve student programs and services at LAUSD schools through a .16 cent per square foot parcel tax paid by property owners living within the boundaries of the school district. Measure EE will expire after 12 years.
