Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger proposed more than $4 billion in cuts to schools.

This would:

• Laying off 57,000 teachers, or 20 percent of the state’s teaching workforce. Or,

• Eliminating four weeks of the school year. Or,

• Increasing class sizes by 23 percent, making them about one-quarter bigger.

The proposed cuts to California's community colleges and universities will mean fewer students can attend.

Schwarzenegger has proposed cutting payments to the California State University system by $481 million and the University of California system by $800 million.

The governor has suggested $581 million in cuts to community colleges.

This is not progressive due to record breaking census in enrollments.

We, the undersigned, call on the California Local Government, as well as the United States National Government to revamp the budget cuts and begin investing emergency funds into the educational system at the collegiate and primary levels.
