As part of an ongoing series, we’re posting personal stories that from our supporters about why Prop. 13 reform matters to them. Our story today comes from Robert, who calls attention to the impact underfunding schools has on students and society.
"I am an educator working in the trenches of the Bay Area community college system, and everyday I deal with young people of color who have been "written off" by our education system. There has been no money to nourish them as educated, responsible, committed members of our culture. Some have died during my watch, or been imprisoned. We must fund our schools and save our children. It is a crime against humanity to stunt a child's potential by offering them substandard schooling."
