Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
EdSource is an organization responsible for gathering and sharing information concerning educational policies and reforms, both in California and nationally. The EdSource Collection houses documents relating to the research, data, and activities necessary to create these resources from 1973 to 2012.
EdSource’s origins begin with the formation of the California Coalition for Fair School Finance in 1976 by the League of Women Voters, the California State Division of American Association of University Women, and the California Congress of Parents & Teachers. The Coalition formed in anticipation of the California Supreme Court ruling in the Serrano v. Priest litigation in December of 1976. The court declared the current system which financed California’s public schools to be unconstitutional. By 1980, these legal demands for equality brought about alterations in the existing laws governing school funding. The purpose of the Coalition was to disseminate accurate and unbiased information explaining the Serrano decision and its implications on California school finance to the public.
