Saving Our Schools
"My son had 37 students in his sixth grade class. This is unacceptable. I'm running for the Assembly to make sure our schools have the funding they need to prepare our children for success in the 21st century." -- Melissa Fox
When it comes to our local politicians' response to California's budget crisis, our smallest citizens pay the biggest price.
As a mother with a child in a public school, Melissa knows the devastating impact of the budget crisis on our children and our schools. Our classrooms have too many students. Our schools have too few teachers and too few resources. Our children are not being prepared for success in the 21st century.
Our kids deserve better.
During tough economic times, investing in education is one of the most important investments we can make.
California is projected to face a shortage of nearly 1 million college-educated workers by 2025. Cutting funding for education will worsen that skills gap and hurt our economy.
We cannot afford this slashing of our investment in education. We must stop the destruction of our schools.
As a parent, Melissa wants her child to have quality schools, well-equipped teachers, and a curriculum that prepares students for achievement and the challenges of the future.
As a member of the Assembly, Melissa will fight for our kids, and make sure that California's schools are again the best in the nation.
According to Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell, “Our state budget crisis has forced districts to lay off thousands of teachers over the past few years.
Each of the school districts in the 70th Assembly District has suffered. Each school has lost teachers and/or cut school days. Every child has suffered.
How can our children be expected to compete and succeed in the 21st Century?
Melissa is running for the Assembly to fight against these disasterous cuts to education.
As your representative in Sacramento, Melissa will fight to make sure that our children have the teachers and the schools they need to succeed.
