Luke Perry Protests School Budget Cuts

| Filed under: Politik90210

Luke Perry Kids education

He's not gonna take it! No, he's not gonna take it! He's not gonna take it anymore!

Beverly Hills, 90210's Luke Perry took to the front lines outside his children's school in El Lay to protest the district's budget cuts on Tuesday.

Wearing shades and a John Deere cap to protect his face from the rays above, he held a sign reading "Support Public Education".

The proposed budget cuts would eliminate multiple teaching jobs, which the actor feels is the result of reckless spending in California's capital. Last month, he took part in a similar protest and commented:

"We're mourning the fact that we're going to lose some of our great teachers and some of the great programs these schools have to offer because of the budgetary irresponsibility in Sacramento. What kind of guidance can you really offer under those conditions?"

Right on, Luke!

It's so awesome to see a dad setting such a positive example for his kids by not only standing up for what he believes in, but for those teachers whose jobs are on the line.

We hope the school district hears his voice!

    I am a teacher and it is so wonderful to see parents who care about their child's education… thank you



  2. 2

    this is why we must RAISE taxes in California.

    The teachers are hurting so much

    Good for him! 'Bout time a celebrity acknowledges this horrible crisis. Here in Michigan, our teachers are getting pink slips handed to them left and right and dozens of schools are getting shut down.

    ROFL, Teens and young adults are SO FUCKING STUPID these days..School budget cuts will most definitely dig that hole for the fail of society.

    Same thing in Oregon. Music has been cut and many people are out of jobs

    School budget cuts are the last things we need. Good for Perry, I completely agree with him.

    Why don't Luke throw some of his 90210 money at the problem? Teacher unions and states like California with their cotton candy policies toward budgets are the reasons they are broke. It's sad Dylan's kids are at the wrong place at the wrong time in their education, but you can't spend money you don't have.

    That is awesome to see - I'm a teacher it's very difficult to see our schools here in California suffering (suffering is the right word, they really are)

    I understand most of you are disgruntled about the budget cuts, but we need to realize we need major reform in our educational system, and it shouldn't be this way!
    The United States is one of the top four spenders on education, yet we are behind so many other countries academically. It hasn't always been this way. What happened, America?? We used to be number one in education!
    We need to realize the decisions made by the federal government are hurting our educational system. This needs to be more of an effort on part of the community. Finland is number one in education. Do you know why? Because they value their teachers. The pay is not only higher, but teachers are required to have master degrees, despite the level or age they're teaching. They don't have 50 people within one classroom either. Also, children who do not speak Finnish are required to master their own native tongue so they can adapt and transition more easily once they acquire the skills, thereby attaining grammatical mechanics and concepts necessary for the Finnish language. We need to model their educational system and take a look at our own. Schools are looking more and more like jails with the number of police on campus. Federal aid and dependency is NOT the answer! SCHOOLS ARE NOT POST OFFICES.

    12 comments!! Looking great Perez! This might be the most popular post this week!

    As far as Dylan acting like he cares? Yeah, let's just pump more money into the education system, so more administrators and fat cats can get fatter. Our poor education system has nothing to do with parents not caring. But raise taxes CA. Seems to be working out great for your state. Liberal nanny state utopia.

    Hooray! Now let's go watch Glee!!

    that'a Ok

    Luke Perry - isn't he dead?

    You may have heard that we had a little ruckus here in Wisconsin with the teachers union among other "stoner" liberal viewpoints. It's all a bunch of crap - especially "entitlements." Wake up and smell the coffee people - we're broke, half the teachers suck at their job! Because of the stupid union protectionism, the promising teachers are cut first. Collectively, the unions will drive this once great country into 3rd world status. Don't throw money at the problem, FIX the problem!!

    Do kids want to learn now or do they just want to text and talk on their phones? They aren't even teaching kids how to write anymore. They can't even spell anymore. What happened to reading, writing and arithmatic? Everything is screwed up. Do parents even care? They are more into themselves and not interested in what the kids are or are not learning.

    I wish someone would come to Holyoke, Massachusetts and do something about it's ATROCIOUS educational system. All the middle class and up have put their children in private schools and no one gives a damn about the rest.

    This is a problem because more and more money goes to administrative salaries and bloated pensions, rather than to the kids.
