California Advocates United to Save Education (CAUSE)
To California's leaders: Education cuts are devastating our public schools and colleges. Our children have paid the price for years of chronic underfunding of education. Our schools and colleges, once the envy of the nation, have fallen into the bottom 5 of the 50 states. But it doesn’t have to be this way! By making California once again the state where every child can receive a high-quality education, all of us benefit. Every expert agrees that the key to economic recovery is good jobs, and the key to a good job is a good education. It’s just a matter of priorities. If we set out to have the best schools in the nation, we could—and not just the way they were before, but better. We call on the Governor of California and elected leaders at all levels to make our students their top priority by: • Returning California from the Bottom 5 to the Top 10 in education funding • Fixing California’s broken school funding process • Expanding middle class jobs to restore funding for education Let’s make sure our children can achieve the California Dream of a better education, better opportunities and a better life. It’s time to SAVE PUBLIC EDUCATION Because LAST PLACE is NO PLACE for our kids!
