Join other CTA members at www.standupforschools.org to help bring awareness to what is really happening to public education in our state. California's public schools and colleges have been cut by more than $17 billion. These cuts are going to impact an entire generation of kids.
Members have made loads of headlines in the past year that shine a light on the plight of public education — but we can't let it end there. The momentum created this past year with Pink Friday and Stand up for our schools was just the beginning.
Use www.standupforschools.org to set up a profile; create events; gain ideas about hosting events; and connect with other members.
What you can do now:
- Share your story. The more the public hears about the drastic, personal impact these cuts are having, the more likely they are to speak up on behalf of education.
- Call or e-mail your Legislator. Tell them that investing in public education is an investment in California's future.
- Write a letter to the editor of your local paper. Lawmakers read their hometown papers to keep abreast of what their constituents are thinking.
