[Homework]【整理】2010-03-14&03-20 美国学校经济来源及支出情况总览 (2/2)

One big reason isthat voters passed a law called Proposition 13, which limited how much moneyhomeowners and businesses had to pay in property taxes. This reduced tax moneyfor funding schools. Voters then became worried that schools were getting toolittle money and passed another law, Proposition 98, which makes sure schoolsreceive a minimum amount of funding each year. This amount is tied to how well California businessesare doing. When the economy does well, school funding goes up. So here isanother look at how your schools are funded.
California residents and businesses pay taxes. Thatmoney goes to the state and local governments. Your school gets money based onthe number of students and school attendance. Then the money is spent in twoways: general revenue funds, which pays for the basics, and categorical funds,which are spent on specific things decided by the government. Voters passed twolaws that impact school funding. Proposition 13 limits the amount of fundingthat can come from property taxes. Proposition 98 guarantees that each schoolis funded to a certain level. So you can see how schools get money to run, whythere is often not enough money for local needs, and how citizens can impacthow schools are funded.

Well-funded schoolsmean a better education and a stronger community. What are the biggest problemsin your school? Too little money, or something else? Get involved, byunderstanding how school funding works, you can help California schools become as good as theycan be, for all students.
