"No on G" guarantees larger class sizes
Original post made by Sandy on May 15, 2009
What is certain is that there will be more cuts. The governor has made it clear that he will continue his strategy of cutting across all the social services in the budget, including education.
The school board cannot make guarantees because they are dependent on the state's redistribution of tax revenues to set the budget. What measure G will do is increase our ability to make local decisions about what we think it is most important to protect in our schools.
A no vote on G is a vote to leave us dependent on Sacramento. It is a vote that guarantees that class sizes will go up, dramatically.
If measure G does not pass, the district will have no way to cushion the impact of the state budget cuts.
Voting YES gives the school district more options to protect the strength of our schools.
