Rally and March to Reverse Budget Cuts to Education

by on April 18, 2008 · 1 comment

in Education, San Diego

Teachers and staff in San Diego schools are trying to get the word out to the general public, the government, and the media just how devastating the proposed budget cuts will be to the education of all children in California’s public schools and universities. It is their goal to have the California legislature and the Governor reverse these proposed cuts. It’s NOT too late!

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

  • WHAT: DEMONSTRATION & MARCH
  • WHEN: Saturday April 19th, 9:15 AM
  • WHERE: Balboa Park: grass at corner of Park Ave. & Presidents Way (MAP)
  • WHY: Protest the budget cuts to education
  • PARK: On Street, Balboa Park Parking, Veterans Admin Parking (across street)

This is a FAMILY FRIENDLY event. We need EVERYONE’S help!– this is truly a grassroots effort!!

UPDATE! Thanks to Greg who commented and left us a link to TeachersRally that looks to building a centralized site where information on these issues and events can be found, and for teachers to communicate with one another about the issues concerning them. Thanks Greg!

I have friends thast are teachers and when they first told me about the effect of the budget cuts ontheir jobs we decided to see what was out there.

It showed us that there is a need for a centralized site that will show teachers the events planned and the information placed in one area that they can contribute to.

We have set up the beginning of this at

http://www.TeachersRally.com

This site is in its’ infancy but we expect it to grow rapidly over the weeks to come leading up to the budget vote.

Education should not suffer and any help to get this site out is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Sincerely,
Greg Plummer
