San Francisco, CA— Common Sense Kids Action released it's 2015 California Yearbook today to celebrate the 2015 California Legislative Class of Characters with superlatives awarded to Governor Brown, bi-partisan legislators and others who fought for a pro-kids agenda that will help better prepare our kids and our state for the future. Class Clown designations were also given to those who stood in the way of protecting kids, especially around student privacy concerns. The yearbook is a humorous attempt to applaud those legislators who promoted kids and education and call out those who didn't.
James P. Steyer, CEO of Common Sense Media said today, "So far it's been a pretty good year for kids in the State Legislature, although we're still hoping for stronger funding for early childhood education. Our hope is that this annual yearbook becomes something legislators fight to get "Bests" in, because no one likes to be called out as a Class Clown. Thanks to all the legislators and advocates in Sacramento and beyond who fought for kids this year. Happy Graduation Class of 2015!"
