Research shows that high-quality educational experiences from birth through postsecondary make a difference in individuals’ success.

In FY23 over half of the state’s students (more than one million kids) are still in districts funded below 75% of full funding.

74% of Black students and 72% of Latinx students are in schools funded below 75% of adequacy, compared to 47% of White students.

If we increase tier funding by $550M each year beginning in FY24 we will reach full funding in less than 10 years.
