The LAUSD Elementary Arts Program is scheduled for a 100 percent cut for 2012-2013. Under current budgeting, The Arts Branch administrative staff is budgeted to be reduced to one position. 10 years of growth are set to be lost, and the District may never recover. This is the time to fight before we lose what is left of what is considered one of the best elementary arts programs in the nation!

Tuesday, May 24th Rally to Save Education in California

Please join us in this upcoming action to restore funding at a State level. Bring your "Save the Arts" type signage!

Wake Up California! Rallies to support public education funding Tuesday, May 24th.
Educate Our State is a parent-led, statewide campaign to unite the voices of Californians in support of high-quality K-12 Public Education and demand real change. Parents and concerned citizens are coordinating a statewide, multi-city day of action to increase awareness for the crisis facing California public schools and the need for our legislators to take action and pass the revenue extension measures to secure school funding.  Parents are organizing rallies across the state to demonstrate the united voice of Californians in support of K-12 public education.

Please join parents, teachers and other arts education advocates at Central High School # 9, from 3:15 to about 5:00 on Tuesday, May 24th for a downtown rally. There will be a stage set up near the corner of Cesar Chavez and Grand.

If you can't make this rally, there will be other opportunities at schools, and a large rally at the Federal Building in Westwood at rush hour. Teachers and parents supporting arts education and education in general should join in this impressive grassroots effort to save our schools. Let's make sure the value of arts education is voiced while we join in the cause!
