Teach the Budget 2012!

11 Jan

The new TtB Fall 2012 curriculum is here!

Use it to teach your students, your friends–or yourself–about the budget crisis at the UC, and how it connects to state and national political and economic issues. Then come back to our site for more info on what’s going on across UC campuses and how to get involved. If you’re planning something on your campus, contact us and we’ll post a link and help spread the word. (Note: the specific information on buses included here is UCSC specific. Folks at other campuses may consult their UAW 2865 campus organizers for details specific to their campuses. Find contact info at:

Don’t forget these other useful materials:

UCSC students and workers will join in an action targeting UC Regent George Marcus, and then on to a mass rally at the UC Regents’ meeting at UCSF-Mission Bay and a march through the financial district to join Occupy San Francisco! Buses will be leaving the UCSC campus at 7:45am on November 16th and leave the Bay Area by 3pm.

Teach the Budget Is Back!

We have a new, updated curriculum with surprising new figures on how the UC and the state of California are cheating students, workers, and educators. But the problems we are facing are more complex and serious and formidable than ever, so we’ve put together a couple of extras to help educators, students, and workers understand the nitty-gritty of the huge wealth-grab that has sent our economy tumbling:

Please help us spread the word by teaching the budget, sharing this link, and spreading the word that the California movement to defend education is back in action and ready for a fight!
