Schools in the Folsom-Cordova Unified School District started classes Monday. According to new school district Superintendent Debbie Bettencourt, education funding in California has dipped to 49th out of 50 states. The district has joined eight other school districts, unions and individual families in the lawsuit Robles-Wong v. California. The suit contends, “The amount of funding provided to education is not enough to deliver the state required programs to all students so that they meet the state’s educational goals.”
