Arnold Schwarzenegger - Arnold Schwarzenegger Rallies Support For After-school Funding

Arnold Schwarzenegger has launched an online campaign urging political leaders to support after-school programs.

The actor and former Governor of California was in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday (30Oct13) to urge congressional leaders not to cut funding to educational projects, and he took to Reddit.com to rally support for his campaign.

The meetings follow an article written by Schwarzenegger on the impact of after-school schemes in guiding students later in life, which was published on Politico.com on Wednesday (30Oct13).

The Terminator star writes on Reddit, "This is something I think everyone can agree on. I've been involved with after-school programs for 20 years so I know how effective they are. I'm in Washington today having meetings on the Hill to talk to congressional leaders about how after-school funding is an investment that we can't afford to cut. I'd love to hear your thoughts."
