Text of measure
The question on the ballot:
|Continue improving the quality of local elementary schools by protecting reading, math and science programs, restoring libraries, music/art, retaining qualified teachers, including those for students with special needs and tutoring programs, maintaining updated classroom materials/computer technology, and reduce class size, shall Mount Pleasant Elementary School District levy an annual education tax of $95 per parcel for five years with an exemption for seniors, no funds for administrator’s salaries, independent citizen oversight and all funds benefiting local schools?|
The San Jose Mercury News endorsed a "yes" vote on Measure H, saying, "Without the $450,000, the largely low-income district in East San Jose will be forced to increase class sizes in the lowest grades, eliminate after-school tutoring and close all libraries, on top of deep cuts made earlier. Vote yes."
