Restore protected funding for K-12 Adult Education in California

To be delivered to The California State House, The California State Senate, and Governor Jerry Brown

Petition Statement

Add Adult Education to the list of non-flexible categoricals within the Local Control Funding Formula
There are currently 3,117 signatures. NEW goal - We need 4,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Adult Education has been serving California for over 150 years, but in the last five years it's been cut to the bone. The Local Control Funding Formula puts Adult Schools at risk for further school closures because it does not provide designated funding for Adult Education. Adult Education empowers marginalized communities and creates a ripple effect that includes better community health, greater school success for children, stronger families, and reduced recidivism. It provides job training to put Californians back to work. The new Local Control Funding Formula for K-12 Public Education can safeguard Adult Education if it includes Adult Ed as one of the non-flexible categoricals - and then Adult Education can safeguard our state. Your signature supports this effort and tells our elected officials that Adult Education Matters!
