We can't go back! Tell your story from the days of harsh budget cuts

The below example comes from George Y. of Sacramento:

"In the last round of budget cuts I fielded call after call from teachers ... who were being laid off or whose programs were being cut. Class sizes grew beyond reason. Art and Music programs were slashed. Libraries closed. No one was unaffected."

Prop. 55

We can prevent $4 billion in cuts to schools by voting YES on Prop. 55
