School Funding Rally Weds 4-21 9am

I am over-burdened by life lately, so I’ve got things pretty much on auto-pilot here.  But of course this is really important for tomorrow:

Give the State of Ilinois an F for School Funding Report Card Wednesday
April 21
9:00 AM to 10:30 AM

Where:
James Thompson Center – 100 W. Randolph
(Outside plaza at the corner of Randolph and Clark)

Purpose:
This is a CPS multi-school parent-driven protest to express our
outrage with the current state funding to our schools.

Bring a Letter:
Collect letters from your school addressed to your state
representatives and state senators urging them for reform and the need for improved and sustained funding to our schools.
We will have a large collection box for your stamped letters. If you
need a sample letter, contact us.

Bring a Sign:
Bring your own signs. Remember the focus of this event is state
funding. Illinois has been at the bottom of the list in what it provides towards education for years. We were in bad shape before the budget crisis. We want fair and improved funding for our schools.

Children are welcome if their school is closed for report-card pick-up.

Check out the Facebook page, CPS Parents for Fair Funding. for
information as well as graphics that can be downloaded and used for letters, flyers and signs. If you have questions, contact Wendy Katten at wkatten@yahoo.com.

    I didn’t feel like there was as large of a turnout as there should have been!
