I'll Be Back

Gearing up for his bid for Governor no doubt. . .

Action star Arnold Schwarzenegger is swapping on-screen combat for a real-life political fight in California as he pushes a ballot measure to dedicate state money to after-school programs.

Too bad many after-school programs can not fill available seats and have a difficult time attracting the population of kids between 12 and 16. This initiative moves what had been a private segment of the education industry into another tax-supported public school service at the cost of at least $85 million for the first year increasing to $550 million annually if state revenues grow.
