Basically this bill was needed because the state has been robbing money from the State Teachers Retirement System for years, by not making the payments it was supposed to be making into the system, and by "borrowing" money from the fund and not repaying it. Now the state passes this bill to require teachers and school districts to pay more to recoup the deficit the state created. Net-net is that taxpayers and teachers are having to pay through the nose for the state's out-of-control spending, particularly for social services, Medi-Cal, and illegal aliens.

The concern is class sizes in both k-8 and high school. There are teachering standard but kids are learning well in part of the class sizes. Teachers are just doing their job per job description yet are children are still not get the better end of the stick, in case, the pen. Reform class sizes.
