The California Secretary of State’s Office has made it official: There will be seven propositions on the ballot this November. Proposition 28 would provide additional funding for arts and music education in public schools, including charter schools, by allocating from the state general fund an amount equaling 1% of required state and local funding for public schools.

Extra school funding for arts and music: Sponsored by former Los Angeles Unified School District superintendent Austin Beutner, this measure would require the state to set aside a share of its public school funding — likely between $800 million to $1 billion per year — for arts and education classes. The new money would be disproportionately reserved for schools with many low-income students to hire new arts staff.
