In the past three years, public education funding has been cut by over $20 million from the statewide public education budget, and schools are bracing for more cuts. Education funding cuts force educational institutions to reduce course offerings for students, increase class sizes, and reduce services, resulting in a loss of access for Ventura County students to the education they need and deserve. Should the tax initiative fail, public education will be challenged with another $5 billion in additional budget cuts next year.
The Board of Trustees is working with interested parties within the community and around the state to advocate on behalf of the Act to alleviate the negative impact on educational programs and services for students. The Board has provided copies of its resolution to Governor Brown and state legislators.
