Despite the passage of school-related state propositions earlier this month, local school districts are still facing thousands in sequestration cuts.

This could include estimated millions nationwide in reduced federal funding for programs such as Title 1 grants and Career and Technical Education programs unless Congress intervenes in the coming month.

    "Until California hits absolute rock bottom"... The voters of California have spoken and elected more free-spending socialists to the state and federal governments. There is no rock bottom to the abyss. It is now a bottomless pit...a black hole that will suck the life out of hard working Californians to support a failing welfare state that surely will implode. Have a nice day.

    Agreed- pull the trigger..Until California hits absolute rock bottom, it is never going to recover. California ranks worst run state for second year in a row.. "California has landed at the very bottom of a list ranking America’s best-and-worst-run states. The financial news and opinion website 24/7 Wall St. ranked states based on unemployment rate, state debt levels, crime rates, poverty statistics and other factors" And it will only get worse with the super majority we have now. Higher taxes, more green nonsense, and regulations chasing everyone out of the state.

    Cut the Federal strings and let California handle it's own educational affairs.
