Can you spare 3 minutes to HELP us to continue to offer such a great Parent & Me Program?
There is a chance the funding for our program could go away in California’s budget for next year, which would potentially close our program.
IF YOU CAN SPARE 3 MINUTES:
- Go to: http://findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov/
- Type in your address.
- Click on the link for the Assembly Person and the Senator that will be displayed
- On BOTH the Assembly Person’s page AND the Senator’s page, click on “Contact”
- Type in your name and address — subject is California Budget (Education)
- Copy & paste the following (OR CALL THEIR OFFICE):
Adult Education is an investment in the future of our community, state and our families. We urge you to vote to provide stability for K-12 based Adult Education through adequate, dedicated funding in the January 2015 budget proposal.
Two main important things need to happen in the budget to assure K-12 based access for adult learners:
– Separate funding for Adult Ed through the K-12 system
– A dual-delivery system (Community College and K-12 based Adult Ed)
