Guest opinion: Parcel tax needed to keep critical programs

by Cynthia Moe

We are facing the worst budget shortfall for education in California's history. The budget cuts will be devastating and will directly affect children. They will force even larger class sizes and the reduction and/or elimination of many critical education programs. While we would like to hope this is a short-term problem, the reality is that it is not. We've listened to the leaders in California at both local and state levels declare the money isn't there and they don't expect additional monies, maybe even less.
