Proposition 55 passes
California voters overwhelmingly approved Proposition 55 and made it clear that they don’t want our public schools and community colleges to return to the days of larger classes and widespread layoffs.
"We are grateful to the voters for supporting our schools and colleges," said Association President Ben Valdepeña. "This critical funding will allow us to continue rebuilding the programs and services that were cut during the recession. It means a brighter future for our students."
