California is in a “State of Emergency”

May 9, 2011

The State of Golden Dreams is now a “State of Emergency” over the drastic cuts
hurting our public education sytem.

Our neighborhood schools are suffering from drastic state budget cuts. Public schools and colleges have been cut over $20 billion in the last three years. During the same time, 30,000 teachers and 20,000 school employees were laid off. This year we stand to lose another 25,000 educators and $2-$4 billion more in budget cuts.

How can we provide all California students with the quality education that they deserve? How do we deal with drastic cuts from Sacramento that hurt our public school sytem? Education is vital for California’s future and a strong workforce. Your voice is needed to make things better for your neighborhood school and for the future of California.

How do you help students?

 “Think about your job and how it impacts students…”

 It’s a simple question, and right now, every classified employee needs to be able to answer it. In these tight budget times, the answer is key to preventing cuts to classified services.

Whether you work in the district office or the county office of education, at a school site, bus yard or a community college campus, your job certainly benefits the students in some way —

 ARE YOU READY TO DEFEND YOUR JOB?

Take a few minutes now to think about how you would describe that impact to a newspaper reporter, your neighbors, or even your family.

Why? The next time CSEA asks for classified employees to address board members or answer a reporter’s question, you’ll be ready to communicate the value of your job to the students, teachers, administrators, parents and ultimately, your community.

And when they ask? Volunteer to share your answer! Click here for a flyer.
