Teaching Materials for your classes

Thank you so much for participating in the "Teach-In" to support the April 21st march on Sacramento! By talking to your students about the California State Budget and its effects on education, you are empowering your students to take action and better their future.

Below you will find a variety of materials to select from. Please feel free to use these materials as you think best suits your classes content and interests.

There are two short videos you can easily share. The first was created by our students regarding the March for California's Future, and the second is a professional video about the California Budget that students have suggested to us.

When you speak to students, we ask that you encourage them to sign the petition to change the 2/3rds law to pass a budget as well as signing the below form letters to representatives or writing their own, and finally to participate in the April 21st march on Sacramento.

Let one of your AFT representatives know if you have interested students as we are trying to arrange transportation for those who wish to participate.
