PUSD reps rally in Sacramento for full and fair funding in education

 

Pleasanton Unified School District stakeholders, including Superintendent David Haglund and trustees Joan Laursen and Jamie Yee, were among the scores of East Bay education advocates who rallied at the State Capitol on April 3 in Sacramento during PUSD's spring break.

Students, educators and community members called upon the state to increase public education funding, and launched a social media campaign using the hashtag #FundCAEd.

It is great to see this direct action in Sacramento. The topic shouldn’t just be full funding. Imagine how good budgets would be across the state if just pension liabilities were fixed.

How much of that funding goes to the students vs salaries/retirement benefits?
