Why are these students and parents upset?

You don’t have to look hard to find evidence of school closings, teacher layoffs, increased class sizes, and cut programs and classes.  As our state continues to feel the effects of the economic meltdown, students are outraged that state leaders would choose to balance the budget by cutting the funding needed to educate our next generation.

Students, parents, teachers, and other school advocates are working to organize the next steps.

Want to join them? Here are some of the groups organizing to stop school budget cuts:
