Thanks for backing Prop. 30

November 13, 2012 

Modesto Teachers Association would like to express our sincere gratitude to the members of our community that showed their support for public education at the ballot box on Nov. 6. The passage of Proposition 30 was a clear victory for the children who are our students. The people of California have sent a clear message to our state Legislature and that message is that we value public education and it is time to start investing in our students and their future.
