Welcome To The EdVoice Hub
California's education funding system is a byzantine, irrational mess. Districts with similar student populations and challenges receive drastically different amounts of resources. In many instances, schools with the most to overcome get the fewest dollars to do it.
If you or someone you know works for an organization that would benefit from being a part of the edVoice Hub let us know and we will let you know how to connect your organization to the hub.
