Why do we need PEF?

PEF Funds the Gap

California ranks among the lowest in the nation in public school funding. In the late 70s, funding methods for education in California were turned upside down.

Today, all tax revenues go to Sacramento where they are distributed statewide according to a needs-based formula. This funding formula leaves PVPUSD with fewer dollars per pupil than what is needed to provide the education we want for our children.
