Having volunteered in Central Valley schools for the past seven years, I have been overwhelmed by the devoted teachers and staff. They work countless hours, well beyond the workday, to instill a love for learning and find new ways to inspire young minds. How could we even consider shortchanging our children and their teachers with further budget cuts?
This is not an additional tax, as some would have us believe. The levy simply allows the schools to function at their current level. Please vote yes for the levy.
