From The Sacramento Bee:
Neel Kashkari, a Republican candidate for governor, will release an education plan Tuesday that would send more money to individual public schools instead of districts, give campuses flexibility like their charter counterparts and provide free college tuition to some students in exchange for a piece of their future earnings.
“California used to boast one of the best education systems in the nation, and we do know how to fix our schools,” Kashkari, a former official with the U.S. Treasury Department, said in a statement accompanying the 33-page plan. “States around the country have implemented bold reforms that can help improve educational outcomes for our students, both in our K-12 schools and in our institutions of higher education. With the right leadership and the right reforms, we can transform our schools to lift achievement and rebuild California’s middle class.”
