Peter Schrag
Sacramento Bee columnist and author

“Deadlock in California: What’s Behind the Breakdown of CA Government”

About the event: The State of California has just begun to issue I.O.U.s rather than paychecks. Among other things, this means that County governments will not receive money to run social service programs, State health programs are in jeopardy, college students and programs will not be funded, the courts will be in limbo and you won’t get your state income tax refund. We welcome Peter Schrag back to the Forum to speak on how the political deadlock in Sacramento is affecting cities, education and social services. Don’t miss this event!

About the author: Peter Schrag was the editorial page editor of the Sacramento Bee for nineteen years, and continues to write a weekly column for the paper. He is the author of many books, including, “California: America’s High Stakes Experiment” (copies of which will be available for purchase courtesy of our friends at Books Inc. of Alameda), “Paradise
Lost: California’s Experience”, “America’s Future and Final Test: The Battle for Adequacy in America’s Schools”.
