- California already ranks 46th of 50 states in per pupil spending.
- California ranks dead last in the number of counselors, librarians and other support staff.
- These proposed cuts will erode our ability to provide a quality education for our children.
This letter goes on to note some action items, things YOU, your friends and neighbors can do NOW to Say "No" to an "all cuts" budget!
Visit the Assembly Democrat's Budget website: http://adc.asm.ca.gov/issues/budget. At this site you'll find ways you can CALL, EMAIL, FAX or petition your support of a budget that does not take away from California Children.
You can download a petition here: http://democrats.assembly.ca.gov/issues/budget/pdf/Budget
Have your friends, family, neighbors and community sign the petition. It reads, "We, the undersigned, oppose an "all cuts" solution to California's fiscal emergency. An "all cuts" approach will do irreparable harm to California's education system, state parks, veterans programs and other vital services."
