Children Now Statement on Supporting Propositions 30 and 38

Sep 14, 2012

SACRAMENTO, CA—Children Now announced today it is supporting both Propositions 30 and 38 on this November’s ballot, joining State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, California School Boards Association, Los Angeles Unified School District and many other leading education voices endorsing both initiatives. Ted Lempert, president of Children Now, states:

“Years of highly respected and unassailable research demonstrate that California schools are in need of significant additional resources and significant reform. What they certainly don’t need is further cuts, which will be the likely result if neither of these revenue measures passes.”

Last fall, Children Now led a range of education, business and community-based organizations in calling for only one revenue measure on the 2012 ballot that would focus on K-12 and early education and be coupled with significant education reforms.

“While Children Now will continue to advocate for both increased resources and major reform, in the short term it should be quite clear to any public school parent – and, for that matter, anyone who cares about the state’s future – that further cuts to education are unacceptable. For that reason, Children Now endorses both Propositions 30 and 38.”
