Californians will vote this November on a $10.4 billion bond issue that would help modernize K-12 and higher education facilities and build new facilities to accommodate the state’s growing student population.

The measure is part of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s $37 billion “strategic growth plan,” which was approved by the state legislature May 6. Other projects include road, bridge, and levee improvements, as well as affordable housing.

Under the plan, $500 million would be spent on construction of charter schools; $1.9 billion would be allocated for new school construction to relieve overcrowding; and $500 million would be spent on facilities for career and technical education.
