SSDA Urges Members to Support ACSA’S Efforts
The Education Coalition Supports Activities
in Local Communities Statewide to
“Start the Day for Students” on March 4, 2010
Teachers, parents, principals, custodians, food service workers, school board members, administrators and others who care about California’s students are participating in local grassroots events in communities all over the state on March 4, 2010.
This urgent day of action is needed because California’s schools have been cut by $17 billion in the last two years, and despite promises to protect our students, the Governor is now proposing $2.5 billion more in cuts.
The Education Coalition invites everyone who cares about California’s students to join in local events and help call attention to the impact of the devastating cuts to public schools. This year, in the wake of all these cuts, our students and schools are being threatened again. We can’t let that happen.
We’ve seen firsthand the impacts of the cuts ALREADY enacted:
- Entire library, art, music and PE programs have been eliminated.
- Class sizes have increased and adult supervision in schools has decreased as a result of more than 20,000 educators and 10,000 school employees being laid off.
We all know that education is essential to building a better California. Working together, we can make sure our students get the resources they need to succeed.
Investing in California’s students is an investment in our state’s future. Please help us to START THE DAY FOR STUDENTS on March 4th!
