Remember to Vote Tomorrow 5/19!

Photobucket last friday teachers and community members protested LA unified school districts' proposal to lay off 5,400 teachers, staff and faculty. read the LA times article here. our education system is already shit, please support these educators in their struggle to prevent it from getting even worse.
please remember to vote yes on propositions 1A - 1F in the cali special elections tomorrow (May 19).  if these measures pass they will free up some money to start repaying some of the public education funding cuts and will help protect schools from even deeper cuts.  if both prop 1A & 1B pass it will repay $9.3 billion to state schools and community colleges.  read more about the propositions on the california teachers association website.
