A Protest on Two Wheels
A bike ride from Oakland to Sacramento aims to halt cuts to education funding.
..They felt elected officials in Sacramento were not holding up their end of the public school bargain. So they got on their bikes and rode east to demand more money for their school and for all of California’s public schools. “What happens in Oakland is a preview for a whole erosion of schools in general,” Napolitano said.
In the three years since, the state has continued to slash education funding, and the four-parent delegation has morphed into a multi-school force of more than one hundred parents, teachers, students, and community members pedaling to the capital to demand better funding for K-12 schools.
