but it requires a special investment to help that potential flourish. An investment that our state funding alone simply can’t cover. In fact, California school funding has gone from first to worst in the nation over the past fifty years. In Manhattan Beach, only 20% of local property taxes come back to our schools. So, while other top-ranked school districts pass parcel taxes to make up for the lack of funding, we rely on the community’s donations to Manhattan Beach Education Foundation to maintain high-quality schools. With your support, MBEF grants play a critical role in providing better schools and brighter futures. They provide the edge for our students need to succeed today and in the future.
