My friend and I attended the big rally for education in San Francisco on Friday. It was awesome. California's education system is facing huge budget cuts (even more than has already been cut). If tax extensions are not put into place, and a budget is not figured out, schools will be unable to function.
Channel 2 News had a helicopter covering the rally. All other news agencies were represented with their news vans. There were LOTS of people in attendance.
Let's hope it works out for California schools. The results of more budget cuts will be even more detrimental. We are functioning with minimal funding now, and it's ridiculous. Something has to change. The students deserve a top notch education.
After the rally, my friend and I walked down Market Street, heading to Union Square. There was an art fair going on, with a mobile DJ even!
Cool drums huh? The Art Institute was sponsoring the event. There's always something going on in the city.
We finished out the evening with dinner and cocktails at The Burger Bar and a little shoe shopping.
