One of the nicer days of late was host to some grim portents as leaders from Long Beach’s three educational bodies held a press conference to outline the dire consequences if the Governor Brown-sponsored Proposition 30 does not pass in November.

Long Beach Unified School District Superintendent Christopher J. Steinhauser, Long Beach City College Superintendent-President Eloy Ortiz Oakley and Cal State Long Beach President F. King Alexander spoke at the foot of the Walter Pyramid at CSULB Tuesday morning about the financial realities each of their individual educational institutions will be faced with should Proposition 30 fail.
