California’s economy increasingly relies on highly educated workers—and the K-12 public education system can lay the foundation for successful preparation before students enter the workforce or pursue a postsecondary education. To meet future economic demand, the state needs to more robustly invest in the public education system. California currently ranks 46th in the nation in per-pupil funding. What will it take to move the state to a robust investment level to prepare students to continue to compete in the 21st century global economy, and solve the state’s future challenges?

Join the San Diego Unified School District, the San Diego Unified Council of Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and the United Way of San Diego for a countywide discussion with parents, community and business leaders on why supporting public schools matters for society and the economy. Superintendent Cindy Marten will provide welcoming remarks to highlight key district initiatives that hold promise in closing the opportunity gap with additional investments in the classroom.
