Governor Jerry Brown released his revised state budget Tuesday, a budget that heavily invests in California’s public schools.

Brown also noted that there are uncertain times ahead, but called his budget prudent.

Schools received $2.9 billion more than what was expected this year thanks to the strong economic growth of the state, Brown’s noted. The budget proposes $39.9 billion in general-fund spending for K-12 schools, an increase in $2,754 per student through 2016-17.

Further, the budget calls for an increase in $1,503 per community college student, $1,935 per California State University student, and $2,491 per University of California student.
