Rally on Wed. at City Hall to protest budget cuts to schools!

Join parents at a rally/press conference opposing the mayor’s devastating budget cuts to our schools!

Where: the steps of City Hall

When: Wednesday, March 30 at 9:30 AM

Here is a flyer you can post or distribute in your schools.

The Mayor plans to eliminate 6,000 teaching positions, which would lead to huge increases in class size.

The savings from these cuts would be only about $350 million; far less than the city’s expected budget surplus of $3 billion.

Class sizes in the early grades are already the largest in more than a decade; come make your voices heard that these cuts are unfair and immoral!

Following this press conference, the City Council will hold hearings to consider these education cuts.

Sponsored by Class Size Matters, Parents Across America, the Public School Political Action Committee, the NY Charter Parents Association, Concerned Advocates for Public Education, the Grassroots Education Movement, and other parent groups (in formation)

Tough time for teachers to make it.

Will the rally be postponed now that the City Council's budget hearing has been postponed? New date for April 7?
