McClatchy High School fights back with Operation Pink

CK McClatchy High School (CKM) students, teachers and parents will be out in force Tuesday morning to protest drastic cuts planned for schools if the Legislature and the Governor fail to act. Protestors will wear pink to symbolize the 13 pink slips handed out to McClatchy teachers and counselors and wave signs urging public support for education funding. 

Under the “worst-case scenario” budget adopted by the district, class size at CKM could go from 35 students per class to 40 students per class next year, triggering the loss of 20 teaching positions. After-school sports, drama, yearbook and other enrichment activities are also on the chopping block. In an ironic twist given the core function of any high school, the College and Career Center is slated for closure.

"It is hard enough to learn as is, I can't imagine going to school with bigger, more chaotic classes," said Associated Student Body (ASB) President Izzy Gardon, a junior.
