How underfunded is YOUR public school? We are parents at Aldama Elementary in East Los Angeles and Parkmead in Walnut Creek, and for us the answer is "radically, unacceptably underfunded," to the point that our children's education is threatened.

That's why we've written and produced "Shake You Down," a five-minute comedy rap video about a PTA that turns to gangster tactics to raise money for their school.

Now we've partnered with EducateOurState.org, a grassroots organization focused on bringing a high-quality education to every child in California. "The video is a great way to help us spread the word about the importance of the two education initiatives on the November ballot," says Crystal Brown, president of Educate Our State. "If Propositions 30 and 38 fail, what happens in this video might become reality!"

Educate Our State was founded by parents who, like the parents in the video, had reached their boiling point of frustration about the dismal funding in California's public schools.
