Education Funding Rally planned for Feb. 28
The Baltimore Education Coalition, a coalition of about 25 of the city's most active education stakeholders, have planned an Education Funding Rally for Feb. 28 in Annapolis. We did a story today about the coalition's efforts in the last month to encourage city school communities to fight a proposed $15 million cut to Baltimore, as proposed in Gov. Martin O'Malley's fiscal 2012 budget.
The group has mobilized hundreds in past year to head to the state capital to oppose cuts to education funding, and expect more than 1,000 this year. They're signing up busloads of people in communities all around the city, and anyone is encouraged to organize and sign up for bus transportation to the rally. For more information about the rally and how to participate, go to the Coalition's website.
