Protesting education cuts

Location

Pershing Squary

532 South Olive Street
Los Angeles , CA 90013 United States

Dozens of Alhambra students and teachers joined thousands of protesters on Thursday afternoon in Pershing Square to decry state education cuts. Debby Apraku, who was one of 29 adult education teachers laid off from the Alhambra Unified School District last year, told the Los Angeles Times, “They’re cutting the future…Not just for us but for all the students.”

Alhambra Feed writers who attended the march shared some of their experiences.

Teresa Gonzalez is a senior at Cal Poly Pomona

“I attend a Cal State university and I have experienced first hand what the budget cuts have done to my education. Students, faculty, and city employees are the brunt of our educational system’s budget cuts. Public education is not supposed to work this way."

Anthony Perez is a senior at Alhambra High

“I reminded myself why I was there: to support our teachers in this long battle against educational cuts. When we were called out to the stage, I remember hearing my name called through the microphone, and in that exact moment in time I felt ready for any challenge that would come my way.”

Stephanie Lee is a senior at Alhambra High

“For the first few seconds, I was overwhelmed only by what a beautiful day it was. But, almost immediately, the purpose came back to me. Thousands of people had come to Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles to protest further cuts, billions of dollars actually, to public education. All around, I could see smalls signs, and large banners that read, “Flunk the State Budget,” or pleas to President Obama to save education."
