WHO: Students, Parents, Teachers, Anyone Who Wants to Support Public Education
WHAT: Last summer, 5 grassroots organizations representing nearly half a million California families, and 22 individual students and parents, sued the state of California to force it to fix its broken system of school funding. A similar suit, Robles-Wong v. California, was filed by the California School Boards Association, ACSA, California PTA, school... districts, and individual students and parents. The State is fighting back and has asked the Court to dismiss both suits. The court hearing will take place on December 10th, the morning after this rally. COME SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR THE SCHOOL FUNDING LAWSUITS AND DEMAND FAIR AND ADEQUATE PUBLIC SCHOOL FUNDING!
WHY: To force Sacramento to invest in California students—California’s future—by fully and fairly funding our public schools.
