New Taxes on the Table?
|The LA Times reports today that the governor's top education aide, Alan Bersin suggest the state look into new revenues to help California's schools.|
"No one can look at the history of California education over the last generation and not notice we went from first to worst … and not attribute that also to the per-student revenue limits we now live under," Bersin said in the speech.
That is a major departure in the rhetoric from just about any administration official, though Department of Finance spokesman H.D. Palmer said taxes are still not being considered.
The story is definately worth a read.
