US Senators and Congress
United States of America

It is known that the state of California is in a financial dilemma, with a $16 billion deficit.

At the beginning of this year Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger dropped the bomb that he intended on $4.8 billion in cuts to the California public schools and a 10% cut in spending for higher education in the next year when one of our largest high school graduating classes is on its way.

Programs such as art, science, physical education, technology, music, after school sports, summer school, supplemental instruction, and libraries are slotted as some of those to be cut.

We, the students of California, and the future generations, ask that you stop the layoffs of our teachers and the financial cuts that take away our educational programs and extra curricular subjects.
