Good-bye….or Good riddance?  

Senator Ricardo Lara has rolled out the official website for the CA Ed.G.E. Initiative, which, when passed, will repeal and retract elements of Prop 227 with a focus on promoting multilingual education and technology growth to get the “edge on the global economy.”

Jan Corea, CABE CEO and Martha Zaragoza-Díaz, CABE Lobbyist, along with partners from Californians Together and the California Rural Legal Assistence (CRLA), collaborated with the Lara Team on much of the language of the bill that was sponsored by Lara, signed by Governor Brown in 2014, and will be placed on the November 2016 ballot.   It doesn’t have a proposition number yet, but it officially going by the name CA Ed.G.E. Initiative.
