Your Call 013008 Debate about California community colleges

Should California change the constitution to increase funding for community colleges?  On the next Your Call we continue our coverage of the February 5th ballot by considering Proposition 93.  Prop 93 would lower fees and increase funding for community colleges and change the way the state distributes education funds.  Is this the best way to do that?  How do we balance K through 12 with college education and if we have the balance wrong, is the new proposition the right solution?  It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
