Many thanks to Katie for capturing many, many video clips of individuals at last night’s rally. This is just the beginning, but it tells some individual stories about why Greater Homewood parents, residents, and education advocates believe Baltimore City Schools are worth supporting.
Over 600 people showed up at a Baltimore Education Coalition rally in Annapolis to demand that Baltimore City Schools stay fully funded though budget hearings which threaten to cut education funding. Parents, teachers, students, and administrators gathered to voice their support of Baltimore City Schools and its students. Education supporters of all ages and a variety of backgrounds could be heard shouting “We Believe!” Delegates who formerly supported cutting the City Schools budget committed themselves to defending funding. Let’s hold them accountable for supporting an educational system we all can believe in.
