The big funding initiative is Measure EE supported by Mayor Garcetti – which has corporations, building owners and homeowners owners (except seniors) paying a little more in real estate taxes in order to lower class sizes and attract and retain quality teachers, counselors, school nurses, librarians, support staff and principals. It is facing strong opposition from corporate lobbyists.
We urge all LA members who received a ballot in the mail to support it in order to make a dent in the funding crisis in LA and the LAUSD. More funding also means more money for SEL. Click for more information: Stand up for LA students by voting by June 4.
