Public schools have been hit hard in the last decade and it’s only getting worse. They have endured budget cuts of more than $20 billion in the last four years alone.

California is 47th in the nation for per-pupil funding. Class sizes have increased and course offerings have decreased. But Proposition 30 can help change that by pumping $6 billion into our schools in the first year.

I recently retired from teaching after 38 years. I still volunteer in classrooms because I will always care about kids. The California Retired Teachers Association supports Proposition 30. We need your help. Visit and learn more. And please vote yes on Prop. 30.

Kathleen Yowell,
Retired educator
