Education cuts: act now

This is what’s going down with education cuts in BC:

With just one week until the 2010-11 BC Budget is presented on March 2, parents and education advocates around the province are busy writing, calling, rallying, petitioning and emailing local MLAs and the BC Premier to stand up for our K-12 students! The message is simple: Last year, while campaigning for re-election at the height of the 2009 global recession, Premier Campbell promised to protect public education despite the tough economic times. British Columbians expect him to honour that promise in his upcoming budget, by covering some $300 million in unfunded new costs and demands that Victoria has imposed on local school boards for 2010-11
