Tell LAUSD: No Cuts to Student Learning & Safety!

May 20th, 2024|All Bargaining Units, LAUSD Bargaining Updates|

Despite more than $6 billion in reserves, LAUSD Superintendent Carvalho and the school board are underfunding our schools. The district is cutting critical positions and programs. Students will pay the price if these cuts go through. LAUSD has the money to fund our schools — they're just refusing to do it. Let Carvalho and the School Board know we won't let them defund public schools. Send them an email demanding they restore school funding and stop the cuts!
