More than 100 parents and teachers held a demonstration at Ventura and Laurel Canyon boulevards Tuesday morning to protest state budget cuts for schools.
“I like to think of it as a rally, rather than a protest,” said Tina Raksin, who made signs and handed them to parents after they dropped their children off at Carpenter Community Charter School. “This is for education and to get people to educate themselves about what is going on in our schools.”
Raksin’s favorite signs said: “If You Think Education Is Expensive, Try Ignorance” and “If You Can Read This, Thank a Teacher.” The rally is part of the grassroots EducateOurState.orgmovement started by parents to unite Californians who support high-quality public education.
