More Teachers Protest California Funding Cuts

The San Jose Mercury News (3/14, Kurhi) reports that a "coalition of teachers and education leaders gathered Tuesday" in Union City, California, "to urge people to take up the matter with the source of the problem in Sacramento. 'We must be clear -- this is a state-funded school system, and it's a constitutional duty to fund it,' said Jill Wynns, president of the California School Boards Association. While Wynns said some districts have sued the state before and will continue to do so 'until they do it right,' other speakers voiced differing ideas for action during the meeting at Emanuele Elementary School in Union City, where teachers received pink slips Monday."
