If Governor Jerry Brown gets his way, education spending in the state will increase by about 5 billion dollars next year. Brown wants a temporary bump in the state sales tax, and an increase in income taxes for high income earners to help cover the cost. If voters don't approve those increases, schools will face cuts that exceed five billion dollars next year. LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy joins us to talk about how educators are reacting to the Governors proposed plan.
