Raising Taxes to Fund Schools

Hosted by

In San Marino, La Canada-Flintridge and South Pasadena, two thirds of the voters have approved new taxes for schools. At the same time in Pasadena Unified, 52% went along, but that wasn't enough to meet the two-thirds requirement.  Yesterday, in Santa Monica/Malibu Unified, the Measure A parcel tax got 63%, a much bigger majority but again, not enough to win. On June 8, voters in the City of Los Angeles will decide on Measure E, which would allow the LA Unified School District to levy a temporary $100 annual education parcel tax.
