A diverse group of Californians, marching from Bakersfield to Sacramento on a 365‐mile trek to rally public support for better schools, is walking from Atwater to Livingston today and then on to Turlock on Easter Sunday.
Among the marchers are a San Diego community college professor, a Los Angeles probation officer, a Watsonville teacher, a Marina del Rey substitute teacher and a retired Los Angeles teacher.
Local teachers, students and community members will join the marchers next Monday at Donnelly Park in Turlock to protest further cuts in state aid. On Wednesday, the marchers will join Modesto supporters at 2 p.m. at Modesto Junior College and then at 4 p.m. for a rally at Graceada Park.
Readers can follow the marchers through the Central Valley as they continue their 48‐day "March for California's Future." For more information, visit www.fight4cafuture.com.
