California's schools were once the envy of the nation Our K-12 programs ably prepared our children for a bright future. Our network of community colleges, state universities and the University of California system provided our residents with some of the best higher education opportunities in the country. Our vocational schools developed a skilled and innovative work force. To build a Working California we need to support our public schools in a fiscally prudent way.
