Today is election day and I would like to urge all readers of this blog to please go out and vote. In particular, I would like to encourage you to vote yes on Proposition 30 and no on Proposition 32.
Proposition 30 is necessary in order to avoid massive cuts to education in the state of California. If proposition 30 fails, we will see significant reductions in the number of classes offered, increased class sizes, and many excellent teachers (myself included) will be out of work or significantly underemployed. Please vote Yes!
Proposition 32 is a deceptive attempt to silence Union voices in the state and give wealthy billionaires and corporations even more control and influence over politics in the state. Please vote No!
But, whatever you do, please vote!
