Don't miss: Town hall meeting on budget cuts

PTA members have organized a Town Hall meeting aimed at letting local and state legislators know that the current public school funding situation is unacceptable.

The event takes place Thursday, February 25, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at Marina Middle School. More info: fundingourfuturesf.com.

Hundreds of parents are expected to gather to join in a discussion with local legislators such as Assemblymembers Fiona Ma and Tom Ammiano, SFUSD superintendent Carlos Garcia, SF Board of Education President Jane Kim and others. Michael Krasny, host of KQED's radio show "Forum," will moderate the discussion.

The dialogue will focus on creative funding solutions to pending budget cuts, smarter long-term budget reform, and local and state-wide parental advocacy efforts.

Here, PTA members Holly Carver and Crystal Brown talk about their advocacy plans in a Comcast Newsmakers interview:
