San Francisco State joins in March 4 action to defend public education

From: 
San Francisco State students, staff and faculty
What's happening: 

Students, staff and faculty from San Francisco State University are all joining together and participating in the March 4 Statewide Day of Action against cuts to public education from Pre-K through Ph.D. Lawmakers need to recognize the fiscal irresponsibility of not providing for an appropriate tax base through progressive taxation. The Governor’s proposal to “stabilize” education funding by cutting other needed services and privatizing prisons is disingenuous. Public schools, colleges and universities have already had their budgets cut to the bone, how is that stabilization? Quality public education is critical to the future of California. Be a part of the solution – join us on March 4, 2010 at the S.F. Civic Center
