Thanks to Heidi Walters for the clarity on Propositions 30 and 38 ("Propping up Schools," Oct. 4). Right now, it is crucial that Prop 30 passes. Our schools need Prop 30. But there is another proposition that seriously troubles me as an educator. Prop 32 would have a negative effect on our schools by silencing teachers' unions. If teachers' unions couldn't use payroll-deducted funds for political purposes, how could teachers make their political voices heard? We are busy. Our collective political voice calls for that which benefits schoolchildren, for example Prop 30. So join me, and your children's teachers in voting yes on 30 and no on 32!
