On the steps of the Capitol


Bassett Unified School District Superintendent Robert Watanabe was at the state Capitol last week as part of the “Save Our Schools” event.

About 20 county superintendents went and stood on the steps of the Capitol to protest budget cuts to education.

“it is time for you to stop concentrating on being right — it is time for you to get it right,” Watanabe said.

The district will actually be holding a town hall meeting on Saturday at 9 a.m. at Torch Middle School in Industry to discuss the budget and how it will affect Bassett.
