A few community members asked me to take an analytical look at whether or not parcel tax Measures G & H are justified.
I decided to only go by data provided by the State of California (which is obtained directly from the school districts) and other well regarded organizations that format and display educational data obtained from the state or school districts on their website.
I asked myself 2 primary questions: 1) Is PUSD underfunded? and 2) Are teachers underpaid?
I wasn't sure I would be able to get everything I needed from existing websites but it turns out I managed to get most of what I was looking for.
I shared an earlier version of this report with the school board and got some feedback. I incorporated that feedback and quotes from board member Cory Smegal directly into the report.

The last slide has a link for feedback and a quick survey.
