what to say about Us!

The California Dream was built on a system of public schools and colleges that gave every Californian access to the education needed to get ahead.
We can’t keep cutting our schools and still keep the economy strong for the next generation.
In the last four years alone, our schools have been hit with $20 billion in cuts, over 30,000 fewer teachers and class sizes that are among the largest in the country.
We have to stop the cuts, stop the steep tuition hikes, and invest in our schools and colleges to prepare the next generation for the jobs of the future.
Your YES vote on Prop. 30 will:
Stop another $6 billion in cuts to our schools this year. After years of cuts, our schools still face a $6 billion dollar budget deficit this year. If we do nothing, the cuts will get deeper. Prop. 30 stops the cuts, provides billions in new funding for our schools starting this year — supporting everything from smaller class sizes to afterschool programs
Guarantee local public safety funding. Prop. 30 establishes a guarantee for public safety funding in our state’s constitution, where it can’t be touched without voter approval. This will keep cops on the street and save the state billions in prison costs over the long term.
To protect schools and safety, Prop. 30 temporarily increases personal income taxes on the highest earners – couples with incomes over $500,000 a year — and establishes the sales tax at a rate lower than it was last year.
Prop. 30’s taxes are temporary, balanced and necessary to protect schools and safety:
Prop. 30 asks California’s wealthiest to pay a little more so that the middle class doesn’t have to bear the burden. Families making below $500,000 a year will pay no additional income taxes.
All new revenue is temporary: Prop. 30’s taxes are temporary, and the initiative cannot be modified without a vote of the people of California. The very highest earners will pay more for seven years. The sales tax provision will be in effect for four years.
Money goes into a dedicated account the legislature can’t touch: Under Prop. 30, the money raised for schools is directed into a dedicated fund for public schools that the legislature can’t touch. None of the money can be used for state bureaucracy.
Prop. 30 funding is subject to an independent audit every year to ensure it is being spent only for schools and public safety.
The audit will be open to the public so that voters and parents know that the funds are being spent properly.
