The editorial board of the San Jose Mercury News supported Measure K, writing, "The 13-school district has lost about $9 million in its budget over the past five years. Teachers who haven't had a raise since 2008 are taking a two-day furlough this year."[2]

Ballot question

The question on the ballot:

Measure K: "Without increasing taxes and to continue providing quality education for local elementary and middle school students by:
  • Attracting and retaining quality teachers,
  • Maintaining strong core academic programs in reading, writing, math and science,
  • Providing updated classroom technology and hands-on science instruction,
  • Keeping libraries open,
