Free Public Education

This is a story that would make any Republican proud:

The Los Angeles Times leads with California school districts' cries to parents for funding in the face of sweeping budget cuts. Potential layoff notices have been handed to 20,000 teachers, librarians, and nurses, as districts ask for as much as $400 a year from each student's family.
It's not enough that most teachers use their own money on the classrooms and students. California schools have been on the slide since the famous refunding priorities in the 70's. What refunding? The one that shifts people from paying their dues to society to buying lots and lots of S.U.V.'s!
