Protesters rally in Balboa Park against cuts in education

Posted: Updated:
Teachers, union members and local colleges are calling on California lawmakers to do a better job of balancing the state budget.

They urged lawmakers to end tax breaks for corporations and the rich during a rally at Balboa Park Thursday afternoon.

Protesters then marched to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's San Diego downtown office.

Protesters said that before the cuts, the state's spending for each student was $6,500. Now, it's $4,800 per student.

The governor said teachers' concerns are not falling on deaf ears. He is calling for tax and budget reforms.
