Your Call 081309 How are we going to educate our kids?

How are we going to educate our kids? On the next Your Call we will be talking with teachers from around the Bay Area. With the latest budget cuts, California now ranks last in per-student school funding in the country. So who will be standing in front of the six and a quarter million students trying to do more with not very much? Send us an email at or join us live at 11 a.m. Can teachers still thrive when budgets are tight? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
