Prop 28 Coalition Letter

May 20, 2024

In 2022, voters overwhelmingly passed Proposition 28, The Arts and Music In Schools— Funding Guarantee And Accountability Act, to supplement (i.e., increase) spending on and access to arts education in every public school. This landmark proposition is a testament to the value California voters place on arts education.

We, along with 84 community based organizations, are concerned that some school districts are making decisions without input from their communities and not complying with Prop 28’s supplement requirements by using the funds to replace existing arts education funding.

We sent a letter to the Governor, State Superintendent, Senate President, and Assembly Speaker to express those concerns. pro
