We aren’t good at keeping things under wraps. There is a reason why I am not a CIA operative.
Anyway, here at the deets:
What: BPS Budget Cut Protest at the State of the City Address
When: Jan. 19th at 4:30
Where: Back of Symphony Hall on Westland Street near the BSO sign. This is where the mayor will be entering the hall.
Why: Boston Public Schools is facing a multi-million dollar deficit resulting in severe budget cuts to schools and services. Over the last two years, Boston Public Schools have seen $140 million dollars in budget cuts. This year, Marty Walsh is proposing $50 million more that will deeply impact High Schools and Special Education services. Some schools are facing a 19% cut in their overall budget.
Join us to let the mayor know that this is an unacceptable way to run a school district. Bring your own sign about the budget! And bundle up because it is going to be cold.
And if you can’t come but support our cause, please sign this petition: http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/stop-budget-cuts-to-boston?r_by=10237357
