Money for Our Schools, NOT Sacramento

The William C. Velasquez Institute and the Latino Voters League Support Proposition 38

Dear Friends,
The William C. Velasquez Institute, along with the Latino Voters League, is excited to lend its support for Proposition 38. Prop 38 is important for California because it is the ONLY Proposition which specifically dedicates funds towards education. Not only that, but Prop 38 also asks every Californian to contribute towards the effort. Here are a few reasons why you should vote YES on Proposition 38:

Proposition 38 seeks to increase, and dedicate, funding towards our K-12 schools and early childhood programs by asking Californians from every socio-economic status to contribute their fair share. Using a sliding scale, prop 38 would call upon Californians earning over a million dollars to contribute an average of $77,000—those earning between $25,000 – $50,000 would only contribute an estimated $54 a year. California school's affect us all—we all share the responsibility; we all reap the rewards. Read our power point here!

Accountability + Transparency

Prop 38 ensures that funding go directly to local schools, and explicitly prohibits politicians from diverting, borrowing, or using these funds in exchange for resources currently going towards schools.

Proposition 38 calls for annual independent audits to be conducted, so as to ensure that the funds actually go towards education. Prop 38 also directs the misuse of funds to be punishable with jail time.

A Local Solution, with Real Results

Funds raised by prop 38 will be used to reverse the damages brought on by the deep and massive budgetary cuts to education by rehiring Teachers, as well as providing for a world-class education that includes mathematics, science, art, gym, college preparation, and vocational and technical education to improve academic performance and graduation rates.
