Today we urge all Californians to take to the voting booths and vote NO on Proposition 58.
Proposition 58, also known as the California Multilingual Education Act, repeals a popular ballot proposal that was overwhelmingly approved by the voters in 1998 called Prop 227, the English for the Children Act.
If Prop 58 passes, then California’s youth will no longer learn English in an English-immersion setting. Instead, they’ll be forced to sit through multilingual programs that will slow their progress and dim their prospects for decent careers in the future.
And that’s not all. Because there will be multilingual courses, the state of California will need to hire an estimated 20,000 new teachers in order to meet the demand. This will cost the taxpayers of California millions of extra dollars.
You will decide whether millions of non-English speaking youth in California lose the best chance they have at learning English.
That is why we URGE all Californians to head to the polls and VOTE NO on Proposition 58!
We are on the front lines in California with all important radio and social media ads to preserve English immersion and urge Californians to VOTE NO on Proposition 58. If we lose this battle, then we risk eroding the very language that binds us together as a nation – and bilingual education could spread across America.
