Cut$ Hurt Kids

PTA speaks up!

Unless the Legislature acts quickly, the Governor has said he will present an all-cuts budget within the week. This would mean an additional $4 billion to $5 billion reduction to K-12 education and even more drastic cuts, on top of the $18 billion that has previously been cut in the last three years. Are we willing to see our school year get even shorter? Close our school libraries? Crowd more students into each classroom? Lose our counselors, classroom aides, reading specialists and more? See the end of music, art and drama in our schools? What kind of future do we want for our children and our state? Now, more than ever, your voice is needed to speak up and let our elected officials know that CUT$ HURT KIDS!

Join PTA and other education groups on the south steps of the State Capitol on Tuesday, May 10, at 9:30 a.m. for a press conference. PTA representatives will then be delivering thousands of postcards to legislators signed at our recent convention.

On Friday, May 13, at 4 p.m., “State of Emergency” rallies are being held in San Francisco, Sacramento, Los Angeles, San Bernardino and San Diego. Help us to demonstrate the power of PTA by coming to the rally nearest you with your children, your friends, the teachers in your school and anyone else who cares about children and the future of public education. Wear your PTA shirts, and carry our “CUT$ HURT KIDS” signs.
