School tax may spread inequality gap

SACRAMENTO, Calif. Out of the more than 20 California districts that held elections for /*school parcel tax*/es this year, at least 16 have approved them, and more districts are trying to place such measures on the ballot later this year.

But the tax measures are mostly winning approval in smaller, wealthier districts.

Some education advocates are pushing to lower the votes needed to pass a school parcel tax from a two-thirds majority to 55 percent.

/*Measure E*/ failed to pass for the /*Los Angeles Unified School District*/ this past election after getting only 53 percent of the vote.
