Assemblywoman Shirley Weber, D-San Diego, has expressed concerns on behalf of the California Legislative Black Caucus about implementation of the Local Control Funding Formula, a 2013 law that was billed as providing billions of dollars in funding specifically to help English-language learners and other struggling students.

On June 10, state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson overruled a subordinate and wrote a letter declaring that the additional funds can be used for broad teacher raises if districts make the case that such raises help achieve LCFF goals. We asked Weber for her reaction.
