Fight for kids

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/opinion/article/fight_for_kids_20101025

Last week, Los Angeles voters followed a long-time tradition of generosity toward public education with a majority "yes" vote for Measure E, which would have provided emergency funding for neighborhood schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District. But the 53 percent the measure garnered was nowhere near the two-thirds vote required by law to pass the funding initiative. We must now look elsewhere for the funds to bridge our children through the worst economic times since the Great Depression. That includes leaving no line item unexamined in an effort to eke out funds for our classrooms.
