Having gone to school in California my whole life I can verify this. The public schools suck, especially in my area. And the cash deficit even hits at the university level. Every year more classes are cut, and the budgets for the remaining classes are reduced as well to the point where not everyone can get the classes they need to graduate quickly enough. That's why we have protests all the time!
