DETAILS:
Be there for our students & schools. Come march & rally for public education.

We are bargaining for the Schools LA Students Deserve, including:
• Increase in per pupil funding
• Lower class sizes in all grades
• More nurses, counselors, social workers, teacher librarians
• An end to overtesting and top-down mandates
• Wrap-around services and community schools
• Ending the privatization of our public schools
• Parent and educator voice on school budgets
• More school discipline support
• Competitive healthcare and salaries to attract and retain quality teachers

Attacks on Public Education
Attacks on public education and decades of systematic underfunding have left our schools and classrooms without the proper resources – from books and materials, to nurses, counselors, psychologists, and librarians. Our students deserve better. Enough is enough.

California Ranks 46th!
California is the 6th largest economy in the world, yet it ranks 46th in the nation on per pupil spending. California spends 7 times ($75,560) more each year per prisoner than it spends per student ($10,291). We hold LAUSD accountable to adjust their priorities and call on the district to join our fight to fund CA schools at $20,000 per pupil by 2020.
