Election: Three approved ballot propositions to help schools

With the passing of Propositions 55, 51 and 58 in the Nov. 8 election, State Superintendent Tom Torlakson commended voters for helping to improve California’s education system.
“Together these ballot measures will help our education system move forward so we can better serve our students and prepare them for 21st century careers and college,” Torlakson said. “Proposition 55 continues a major investment in our schools, providing districts with the resources to continue the momentum we have seen reflected in increasing graduation rates, rising test scores in math and English, reduced class sizes, and the return of classes in art, music, science, and civics.”
Proposition 51 will provide the resources that districts around the state need to construct and repair buildings and facilities that provide students and educators with the modern classroom environment they need to learn and succeed, according to state officials.
Proposition 58 reduces unnecessary barriers to multilingual education and encourages students to become proficient in a language in addition to English, an ability that will allow them to succeed in the global workplace, and to more fully participate in the rich cultural diversity of California, according to education staff.
