YES on Schools and Local Public Safety Protection Act
It’s time to invest in our common future and put California back on track!
Our public school budgets were cut $20 billion in the last four years. California ranks 47th in the nation in per-student funding and has the largest class sizes in the country. Additional education cuts of $6 billion are being proposed.
NO on Special Exemptions Act
Don’t let corporations silence our collective voice to advocate for our students, our schools and our profession!
Corporations and Wall Street bankers are systematically dismantling the middle class. The only thing that stands in their way is working people like CTA members. Make corporations play (and pay) by the rules!
