This report contains estimates of the cost to California’s public schools of meeting the state’s achievement standards. In the aggregate, the cost is about 40 percent greater than the expenditures of California schools in 2003-04. The bulk of these additional costs are for resources needed to boost achievement in schools primarily serving students from low-income families.
