Wednesday – March 24 – 5:00 pm* *
Boston School Committee
26 Court St., Boston*

*
Tell the Boston School Committee:*

   - *Full Funding for Boston Public Schools!*
   - *NO Budget Cuts!*
   - *NO Layoffs!*
   - *NO School Closings!*
   - *Stop Union Busting!*
   - *Stop the Resegregation of Boston Schools!*
   - *$$$ for Education NOT for War & Wall St.!*
   - *Equal Quality Public Education is a Right!*


On March 24th the Boston School Committee is scheduled to vote on additional
budget cuts, layoffs, cuts in transportation, and school closings for the
Boston Public Schools.  Every year we are told that there is no money
available for public education and every year the youth of Boston continue
to be shortchanged by a school system that is severely under-funded &
under-resourced!  The proposed budget will cut the budget, force layoffs,
cut transportation, reduce custodial staff, defer maintenance, and cause
school closings.


Money for public education is available. The government has spent trillions
to bail out the banks, Wall St. and the auto industry.  Trillions more go to
the Pentagon and the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, & Pakistan.  The state gives
away millions in tax breaks to the wealthy & corporations. Recent
legislation will accelerate the privatization of public education by
increasing the number of publicly funded privately owned charter schools.
Equal quality public education is a right and must be fully funded!


Regardless of the outcome of the March 24th vote, we will continue the
struggle for equal quality education when the City Council meets to approve
the BPS budget.
