Financial Windfall For California Education

Sacramento, CA — Governor Schwarzenegger appears to have reached a deal with education leaders to pay back billions of dollars to schools.

Educators have argued that he owed them the funding ever since he made a deal to borrow money from education in 2003.

The deal calls for the state to immediately spend $2.8 billion more on education. Schools will get another $2.9 billion from an unexpected tax windfall.

The agreement is expected to end a lawsuit brought by education groups and it may also quiet one of Schwarzenegger´s most vociferous political enemies — the California Teacher´s Association.

C-T-A president Barbara Kerr calls it a victory for the state´s teachers, but the union says it won´t change its stance on the governor´s race — the C.T.A. is endorsing Democratic candidate Phil Angelides.
