Young protesters, some sheltered by umbrellas, did their part to support increased state funding for education.
A small number of students and parents at Wildwood and Havens Elementary Schools defied the rain Thursday morning to blow bubbles in support of increased education funding from the State of California.
They were part of a statewide campaign organized by a grassroots parents' group, Educate Our State. The bubbles were meant to tell state legislators "Don't Blow It!" as lawmakers were poised to make further cuts to education and school districts throughout California announced teacher layoffs Thursday.
