Ep. 05 | Public School Funding in the COVID-19 Era, Part 1

What started as a mysterious illness on the other side of the world quickly turned into a global pandemic that’s altered nearly every aspect of life. And it’s caused an economic shock that could have major consequences for public schools across California. 

In this episode, OC Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Al Mijares, talks with Mike Fine, CEO of the Fiscal Crisis and Management Assistance Team (FCMAT), who shares his insight on how the COVID-19 downturn will affect K-12 budgets  — and whether there are any bright spots in the financial forecast.
