Governor Brown, Molly Munger and the Future of Public Education Between now and election day in November, we'll be hearing a lot about the fate of public education in California. Two ballot measures are competing to increase taxes and distribute the new revenues in different ways. There is no question that the proposals are serious or that the stakes are high. Proposition 30 was placed on the ballot by Governor Jerry Brown. Prop 38 is the creation of a wealthy Los Angeles lawyer named Molly Munger . Both have appeared before editorial boards of major newspapers, including the Sacramento Bee , where Dan Morain is a senior editor. We hear from him and advocates for each measure.
