A minute of your time

If you are a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin, neighbor or friend of a school-age child in the state of California, please go to the link below and fill out the petition to keep Proposition 98 in place. Proposition 98 guarantees minimum funding to our public schools. Governor Schwarzenegger has asked that Proposition 98 be suspended so that he can cut 4.8 billion dollars in education funding to our schools.

California is currently ranked 46th in the nation in per-child education expenditures. The proposed cuts would move California into 50th place in the nation. The Governor's proposed cuts to education are unacceptable and he needs to be told to find another way to balance the huge deficit that our state currently faces. It should not be done at the expense of our children's futures.
