Creativity Helps Educators Get Out the Vote
From Raging Grannies in Fresno to an open-top double decker bus in San Diego, educators harnessed their passion and creativity to get out the vote this weekend in support of Proposition 30 and to oppose Proposition 32.
After a weekend that included a lot of walking and talking to strangers about issues that can often be controversial, many came away feeling energized and ready for the final two weeks before the election.
"It's important for voters to understand the truth about Propositions 30 and 32. A lot of people are unaware that 32 is very deceptive," said CTA Boardmember Curtis Washington. "When people understand the truth you can see a light going on in their head. As a teacher I love to see that light go on."
