Angry Tired Teachers to Perform

The Angry Tired Teachers will perform "Cuts Hurt" along with their other top ten, disgruntled educator hits at the rally!


Why?
All across California, education is under attack. Schools are closing. Teachers and staff are being laid off. Fees are skyrocketing as financial aid is being cut. Classes are being canceled and hundreds of thousands of students are being turned away from colleges. Entire programs and electives are being eliminated. Public education is being destroyed. A quality education has become something only the very rich can afford.
And coming from Sacramento, all we hear are cries of more budget deficits, more cuts to education, and an overall deepening of the attacks.

We are helping to support our Governor's proposed 2011-12 Budget Plan. If the budget plan is not qualified or does not pass, K-12 schools will be cut by approx. $2.3 billion dollars. ($18 billion has already been cut over the past three years!)
