This is nothing more than a union backed campaign for the initiative to lower the 2/3 vote requirement to pass a CA state budget, wrapped in a 'better schools' rallying cry. The website has all the details including a 'coalition supporters' list full of unions and affiliates. Although this 'news article' is factual, it is completely void of what is really behind this walk. The PW can do better, much better. Wake up.
