We believe that every child should receive an adequate and equitable allocation of resources no matter their race, socioeconomic status, or zip code nor whether they are enrolled in a traditional district-run public school or public charter school. Addressing inadequacies and inequities in funding is a critical component of efforts to reform and improve education. Therefore, we support student-centric policies to:
- Increase public education funding;
- Distribute resources according to school and student needs;
- Give school leaders more authority and autonomy on spending;
- Increase teacher pay and provide incentives to attract and retain a diverse cadre of teachers in high-needs schools and specialty areas;
- Extend learning time.
