Lara's Bill Ensures Constitutional Guarantee of Free Public Education

January 20, 2011

Sacramento, Calif. – Assemblymember Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) introduced Assembly Bill 165 today, which will put complaint and auditing procedures into place that will help identify, eliminate, and prevent the charging of illegal student fees in violation of a student's constitutional right to a free public education.

"Education has the potential to be the greatest equalizer in our society, however illegal fees on low-income children in our state further erode this promise and our trust in public education," said Assemblymember Lara.
