We Are Public Education

We are public education. I am the first in my family to graduate from high school. I am a taxpayer. We are public education. I made it to Cal because my parents sacrificed everything for me. I believe knowledge is for the people. We are public education. I have worked my entire career at Boalt Hall and I cannot afford to send my son to Cal. My parents were immigrants from China, and they met at an I-House party. We are public education. I am the daughter of a public school principal. I am a third generation immigrant from India and a third generation Cal graduate. We are public education. I am a woman of color. I am a voter. We are public education. I want to do my job at Cal without fear of layoffs and furloughs. I will send half of my weekly paycheck this summer to support my parents. We are public education. I paid my own tuition to community college. I am going to work in California and raise my family in California. We are public education. We want excellence. We want access. We want a living wage for the workers who clean our classrooms. We want our children to have what our parents gave us. We want to preserve public education. We are public education.
