Demand Equity in California Public Schools

Sign the Petition

It’s time to pass AB 3086 to provide more enrollment options for kids who need them.

All California public school children deserve a quality public education.

So why has our education system left so many communities, especially low-income communities of color, behind?

The California Legislative Analyst’s Office recently found that our state has the second largest achievement gap for low income students in the country.

Only 36% of low income Californians met or exceeded eighth-grade English standards, compared to 68% of non-low-income students, yet California doesn’t even have a plan to improve schools that are failing kids.

Our schools—and our children—deserve better. That’s why we’re promoting AB 3086, which would:

  1. Provide more public-school options for kids in need of extra help;
  2. Expand enrollment options for children of migrant workers, students who have been victims of bullying, and homeless youth.

Tell the legislature that a public education system for the privileged few is out of step with California values.
