This morning, many Fox Elementary parents were picking up signs made by teachers that read, “Save our Schools”. These will be held by parents, teachers and children at tomorrow’s VEA rally. The rally will be held from 11am-noon at the Capitol Square grounds.
From the flyer:
Stand up for public education. The General Assembly is preparing to cut $1.8 billion from public education funding. This means approximately 30,000 education employees or 1 in 6 educators will lose their jobs. This will destroy public education as we know it! Many senators and delegates claim that these cuts are what their constituents want. As a citizen and a tax-payer, is this really what you want? Don’t sit quietly while it happens. Make your voices heard! Everyone is encouraged to attend!!
