Today, KCSB is covering the Day of Action to Defend Public Education. Events are happening at each University of California campus, including UCSB. At 12 noon, KCSB will pre-empt our normally scheduled program, “The Marketplace of Ideas,” to air live the rally and press conference taking place at UCSB’s Arbor, the public plaza in front of the Davidson Library.

We’ll have more coverage during our 5 p.m. newscast. At that time, we’ll present live reports from downtown Santa Barbara where area school teachers and other supporters will march to demand more funding for education in the State of California. Tune in at 12 noon and 5 p.m. for these reports, or listen online.
