1 Building a Budget Foundation For : Summary of Actions-to-Date Upland Unified School District Board of Education March 23, 2010

2 COMMENTARY REGARDING THE STATE BUDGET “Unfortunately, it’s not the first time our governor has broken his commitments and balanced the state’s budget on the back of our school children, but this could be the first time he is held accountable for it,” said California School Board Association President, Frank Pugh. “It’s not right that our children keep paying the price for California’s broken education funding system.” “The Governor claims to be ‘protecting’ education, but that protection is hurting students, cutting billions more from our schools and colleges, and breaking education promises made last year,” said David A. Sanchez, president of the California Teachers Association. “The governor is adding insult to injury by trying to renege on restoring the money owed to our students at a time when our public schools are already reeling from massive cuts.”

3 “The Governor wants to retroactively cut last year’s funding to schools and default on yet another promise to California’s students,” said Allan Clark, president of the California School Employees Association. “It’s shameful that our state’s leaders would turn their backs on our students yet again.” “Voters understand the importance of investing in education,” said Bob Wells, Executive Director of the Association of California School Administrators. “According to the latest statewide PPIC poll, 82 percent of Californians oppose reductions in K-12 schools to fix the budget deficit. Our state’s leaders have decimated education funding in our state over the past two years, and any attempt to renege on the deal to restore funding to our students is reprehensible.” COMMENTARY REGARDING THE STATE BUDGET

4 “Lawmakers who support the Governor’s plan and vote for any budget that includes further cuts to schools are breaking the promise to children that they made in July,” said Linda Mayo, Vice President for Communications of the California State PTA. “California students are being denied the individual attention they need to succeed. It’s time for our leaders to stand up for students and make the right decision to invest in the future of our state.” COMMENTARY REGARDING THE STATE BUDGET
