In affluent or gentrifying areas of the Los Angeles Unified School District, parent fundraising organizations — like parent-teacher associations and school booster clubs — often cover big-ticket costs, including salaries for administrators, gym teachers and science instructors. What does this spending reveal about state and district attempts to fund schools equitably?

Join KPCC/LAist K-12 education reporter Kyle Stokes as he speaks with experts on school funding about how the system works and what could be done to improve it. They'll also answer your questions in real time during this virtual event.

Special Guests:

Troy Flint, California School Boards Association
Sarah A. Hill, CSU Fullerton
