California teachers walked precincts Sunday to encourage voters to support Proposition 30.
“Any day we can go out and work for the kids and public education is a good day,” said Eric Heins with the California Teachers Association.
Supporters of Prop 30 say our schools need the revenue from a tax increase. Governor Jerry Brown is counting on the money to prevent billions of dollars in cuts to the classroom.
The “Stop Prop 30” campaign says California doesn’t need a tax increase, it needs lawmakers who know how to prioritize.
“Challenge the politician to do better,” said campaign spokesman Aaron McLear. “Challenge them to fund schools over the bullet train or pay raises or pensions. Make sure (education’s) the most important thing.”
