Signature gathering begins for the Our Children, Our Future education initiative
The Our Children, Our Future 2012 campaign and the California State PTA today launched a signature-gathering drive to secure a spot for the education initiative on the November 2012 ballot. Click here to read the full press release.
During a media conference call this morning, Carol Kocivar, president of California State PTA said: "This measure will transform our schools and help give California children the education they deserve. It provides vital new resources for our severely underfunded public schools. Every student and every public school will benefit - and tough accountability provisions will ensure the money is used to improve student achievement."
As part of the launch today — and to further energize the grass-roots work that PTA is spearheading — the campaign also unveiled a new website design at www.ourchildrenourfuture2012.com.
Help transform California’s schools
To prepare for the collection of signatures, meetings have been taking place throughout the state at the district, council and unit levels. The response to these meetings has been positive and many of our members are ready to take the petitions to their family and friends to help with the effort to qualify this important measure for the ballot. We are working cooperatively with the campaign, and it will be providing signature-gathering packets to our members beginning this weekend.
We encourage you to get involved. Help qualify this important education initiative for the November 2012 statewide ballot.
