As part of KQED’s election 2016 coverage, we discuss California Proposition 51, which would authorize the state to issue $9 billion in bonds for K-12 and community college construction projects.  Proponents say it has been ten years since the last statewide school bond, and that it provides much-needed upgrades to public school facilities. Critics say it's a giveaway to developers and provides no oversight to ensure the bond money is spent right.
