“Getting Down to Facts” is the largest independent investigation ever of how California governs and funds public education. It was commissioned at the request of a bipartisan group of California leaders, including the Governor’s Advisory Committee on Educational Excellence, the President Pro Tem of the California Senate, the Speaker of the California Assembly, the Superintendent of Public Instruction, and the state Secretary of Education.
