Letter: Keep quality education; support Measure C

As a preschool director, parent of high school and college-age children, and simply a member of our community, I believe it's extremely important to support Measure C.

Given the huge growth in enrollment over the past few years and severe state budget cuts, the Menlo Park school district will not be able to maintain the high quality education it offers without the passage of Measure C. Vitally important educational opportunities in areas such as hands-on science, music, art, foreign language, and services to struggling students will be reduced or eliminated without the passage of Measure C.

I want to ensure that our town's preschool children have the same opportunity to receive an excellent public school education as my children did. For less than 50 cents a day, we can make sure to keep class sizes small while ensuring that our children get a well-rounded and rich educational experience. Our kids are our future. Please join me in supporting Measure C.
