(Photo above) From right, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson and a volunteer take a breather from making phone calls to voters Monday evening at the Sacramento City Teachers Association (SCTA) phone bank.
Both hit the phones to help secure votes for Proposition 30, the only measure on the November 6 ballot that will protect K-12 public education, the community colleges, and the state university systems against another $6 billion in devastating funding cuts.
(From l.) Supt. Torlakson was calling voters Monday evening along with many volunteers. Teacher Stacey Willet of Luther Burbank and her son were among them. Stacey is SCTA’s most dedicated phone-banker. She has made more than 1,200 phone calls herself, Chapter leaders report.
