Adult Ed Needs Funding from the Governor

The Governor needs to decide now if he will fund Adult Education in 2015. I'll be posting a myth and fact from the California Council for Adult Education. What can you do? Email the Governor and request "dedicated funding for K-12 Adult Education" and to have it "sent to school districts, not the College Chancellor's Office."

Myth #1: The Governor has promised $500 million to fund adult education ongoing.

Fact: The $500 million figure was put forth in the FY 13-14 budget discussions. To date, there are no commitments to maintain the $500 million level of funding for adult education in FY 15-16 – it may be more or less, there is only a vague commitment to provide some level of funding (no specific number at this time).
