Measure EE is a vote to increase property taxes on all homeowners, renters and businesses. The 16-cent per square foot tax on all properties will flow into the School District’s general fund with no requirement that revenue be spent in the classroom or on our kids.
“We walked miserably in the rain and lost 6 days of pay because we followed a union leader who insisted there was large reserve that the district was hiding. Well apparently there wasn’t. Caputo-Pearl’s main goal all along was to increase properties taxes and used us to influence public opinion... Now we have this measure being pushed through... I didn’t go on strike to be blindsided by having my property taxed...pretty dam sneaky.”
“I am an instructor with LAUSD and a member of UTLA, When we went on strike we were told that LAUSD had the money to meet our demands but now they want us to back a Measure that doesn't assure us that it would go to the classrooms They lied to us… and now they want me to vote to for this NO WAY”
I am an LAUSD teacher and I oppose this measure. The district has plenty of money, especially if those in charge would get rid of the gross waste. Vote NO on EE.
“The teachers, parents and students at LAUSD are hard-working and dedicated. But they can only work so hard to overcome the systemic failure of leadership by the district.”

“The biggest reason all Los Angeles voters should vote no on Measure EE is that this bailout would remove the pressure for needed reforms.”
– Jon Coupal, Daily News
“Rather than take the necessary steps to improve the operations and finances of the District, the Board and UTLA believe that more and more of our money will solve the problem. It is like throwing more good money into the fire.”
– Jack Humphreville, LA Watchdog for CityWatch
We can’t afford to let LAUSD bureaucrats waste more tax dollars on bloated administrative costs, pensions and consultants. Our kids deserve better.
