Over the last three years, California has cut public school budgets by more than $20 billion and laid off over 40,000 educators. Underfunded public preschool programs serve only 40 percent of eligible 3 and 4 year olds. Only five percent of very low-income infants and toddlers have access to early childhood programs.
We are shortchanging our children -- and they deserve better.
It's time Californians joined together to invest in our children, because we all share in the benefits of better schools and a better-educated workforce.
Our Children, Our Future is the best solution to ensure that money intended for helping California's children goes directly to local schools. The measure will raise $10 to $11 billion annually in new revenue while reducing the cost of education bonds to help end the state deficit and protect our children and schools from further budget cuts.
Add your voice today to support the Our Children, Our Future initiative on the ballot this November in California.
