FINANCIALLY, THINGS are bad in California and could get worse. The recent failure of the "budget fix" state propositions caused lawmakers to "get serious" on the spending question and Sacramento has proposed cuts to everything from prisons to schools. Local governments, including schools, cities and counties, can't escape this new era of "cutback management" and public sector leaders everywhere are trying to figure out how to keep their doors open for business.
One creative organization is taking their "budget cuts" protest to the Internet.
The kids at the South Pasadena Unified Grade "A" are protesting the state's budget cuts aimed at public education and have posted a great music video on You Tube. Their music is based on Woody Guthrie's 1937 original, "Do Re Mi."
I invite you to take a minute from your busy day and enjoy the creativity of the South Pasadena Unified Grade "A" Jug Band. Kudos to the kids and their teachers!
