With less than 24 hours before the polls open, Campbell Union High School District teachers hope they can personalize some of the propositions on the ballot.
From 7:30 to 8:00 a.m. Monday morning, Prospect High School teachers and supporters stood in front of the school campus and held signs asking parents and school community members to vote yes for Proposition 30.
"We are all getting bombarded with commercials on Prop. 30 and 32," says Christine Berube, treasurer of the Campbell High School Teachers Association. "We have been behind Prop. 30 from the get go. By being out there, we're hoping that it gives a personal touch. When people drive passed here, they see that these are the people teaching their children, not just people on TV. It makes it more real."
Teachers will be out again on Election Day.
"There’s commercials out there with teachers that want you to vote either way," Berube says. "Parents are asking themselves, 'who am I going to put my trust in?' Our hope is that they put it in the teachers that are teaching your children."
