|Event Type||Press Conference|
Adult education in California is under tremendous attack and the complete elimination of adult schools is a possibility if we don't act vigorously to defend them. On June 12 educators and students from L.A., Oakland, Santa Clara, Berkeley, Oakland, Campbell, and other areas will converge in San Mateo for a press conference/rally to inform the world that Gov. Brown's current budget plan includes proposals that would destroy the source of education for millions of adults, youths, the unemployed and the retired poor. People need to know that what is going on with adult education is part of a drive to privatize of all education. We need to denounce and defeat this latest maneuver by the power to undermine vital social programs.
