Propositions 1, 2, and 3, which would have limited collective bargaining for teachers, introduced merit pay in the state, required students to take online classes before graduating, and launched a statewide 1-to-1 laptop program for high school students and teachers, were defeated in almost every county in the state, with the laptop and online class mandate, Prop 3, facing the most opposition.
