LONG BEACH – In the Long Beach Unified School District, students could see fewer programs and shorter school years.
Long Beach City College could turn away up to 1,300 qualified students.
At Cal State Long Beach, students could see higher tuition and deep cuts to courses.
These are some of the potential cuts that local education leaders say could be enacted if Gov. Jerry Brown’s tax initiative, known as Proposition 30, fails to pass in the Nov. 6 elections.
On Tuesday, LBUSD Superintendent Chris Steinhauser, LBCC President Eloy Oakley and CSULB President F. King Alexander gathered on the steps of the university’s Walter Pyramid to describe the devastating impacts on local education if Prop. 30 fails.
