But the marketing says that Proposition 2 is trying to protect schools from devastating cuts. Are you saying it will not do that?

A:

Proposition 2 isn’t about putting or keeping money in education – it’s about holding money back from education

The reason a Constitutional Amendment is required is because the Legislature wants the right to give schools LESS than the minimum guarantee for school funding, while squirreling away the difference to help its cash flow.  Then, in a bad year, it will ‘give’ schools their own money, while spending the State’s money elsewhere. 

Proposition 2 is about creating options for politicians to concentrate resources on areas other than education. 

Please, Proposition 2 is for politics, NOT for public education or schoolchildren.
