The article reports on the proposed educational budget revision in California in May 2011. The revision will create funding growth for K-12 schools and the state's university and community college systems as well as the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data Systems (CALPADS). The principal reason for the budget increase is the unforeseen raise of 6.6 billion dollars in anticipated tax revenue. The budget revision is still pending for approval by the legislature of the state.
