Show more
Now that the kids are back in school…let’s go back in time, not very long ago. To the years of deep education cuts that hurt our children and schools. Remember? Thirty thousand teachers laid off. Larger class sizes. Art and music programs – eliminated.
It was…devastating. And it’s why we need to vote Yes on Proposition 55. Because Prop 55 prevents four billion dollars in new education cuts – simply by maintaining the current tax rate on the wealthiest Californians. And Prop 55 provides strict and specific requirements for accountability and transparency. Ensuring the money goes directly to our classrooms – not to administrative costs. We can’t go back to cuts that hurt our kids. So help our children thrive…by voting Yes on 55.

Every child deserves a chance to learn and no child succeeds alone.
