I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

As a career journalist and EJ advocate, I see community-based media like the Alhambra Source as crucial to democracy and equality.

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

On day of pink slips, Alhambra teachers protest cuts

As parents dropped off their kids Tuesday morning, they were greeted with teachers hoisting signs saying "Our students deserve better," and demanding an end to state education cuts.

California’s deadline for school districts to issue preliminary layoff notices to employees was March 15. Alhambra was not spared: Three adult education teachers received notice their contacts may not be extended into the 2011-2012 school year.

Members of the Alhambra Teachers Association, dressed in bright red as a sign of solidarity for their colleagues across the state, passed Romona Elementary Student, Iliana Mangasout flyers and leaflets outside of Alhambra High School Tuesday morning to inform parents about the current economic crisis and how it’s affecting the city’s schools. They also urged them to support Governor Brown’s proposed balanced state budget, which acknowledges that K through 12th grade education has taken a "disproportionate" amount of cuts over the past three years.

Among the teachers was Jose Sanchez, a history teacher at Alhambra High School and member of the ATA. “When I see potential budget cuts in the coming years, I know that it’s going to affect our community and the education of our students,” Sanchez said. “We need to be proactive and support the governor’s proposed budget plan that prevents future cuts. If we don’t, we’re going to see losses in a lot of programs, especially the arts and music.”

We don’t have advertisers and we don’t have pay walls, but we do have bills. You read to the end of this story. That's great. But this kind of journalism will end without public support. Join us!
