Remember me

Male VO:
Imagine how things could be, just a few short days from now:

Male: Imagínese como andarán las cosas  en unos pocos días:  3.5

(SFX: Classic "morning/wake-up" newscast music fades in)
Male Newscaster: Hello, California.  It’s a very troubling day.

Male: Hola California. Es un día muy preocupante.  3.25

Female Newscaster: It's Friday, July 1st, 2011.  And Californians are reeling, as the June 30th state budget deadline came, and went...

Female: Es el viernes,  primero de Julio, dos mil once. Y los californianos están pasmados cuando llego y paso el treinta de Junio, fecha de vencimiento del presupuesto estatal…  11

Male Newscaster: ...with the governor and legislators failing to pass a budget that protected funding for public schools and colleges.

Male:…sin que el gobernador y los legisladores pasaran un presupuesto que proteja los fondos para las escuelas y universidades publicas.  8

Female Newscaster: students and parents will suffer most, as the threat of losing  20,000 more teachers from our classrooms is now...a reality.

Female: Los que más sufrirán son los estudiantes y sus padres, al perder otros  veinte mil maestros. Esta es la realidad.  7.5

Male Newscaster: One question-- can our economy ever recover if we keep cutting our education system ?

Male: Una pregunta— será posible que se recupere nuestra economía si seguimos recortando la educación?  6
Female Newscaster (as a classic on-air, chit-chat "aside" to Male Newscaster): This isn't just about whether we'll ever have a state budget.  This is about whether we’ll have a future...

Female: No se trata solo de tener un presupuesto estatal. Se trata de nuestro futuro. 5

Male Newscaster (gravely): Indeed it is...
 (SFX: Newscast music fades out)
Male: Sin duda, eso es… 2
Male VO:
Call Governor Brown and your legislators. Tell them it's time to pass a budget that protects our students…and California's future.

Male: Llame al Gobernador Brown y sus legisladores. Dígales que ya es hora de pasar un presupuesto que proteja a nuestros estudiantes, y el futuro de California. 9
Female: Paid for by the California Teachers Association.

Female: Pagado por la Asociación de Maestros de California 3
