My husband and I will be canceling each others' votes out today. From my friend Vicki, a long time policy expert in education:
I agree that Prop 123 is unlikely to prevent lawsuits. First, it's a compromise that doesn't "fully fund" what spending proponents claim is owed. Second, this plan puts our land trust at risk. It's telling that to my knowledge no finance expert has endorsed this plan. Finally, there is no requirement that funds go to teachers or classrooms.
