BUILD & Education Coalitions turn out hundreds

March 2nd, 2017

On Monday February 27, BUILD stood with 50 principals, over 150 parents and teachers in front of City Hall to demand fixing the $130 million gap between the City school budget and funding. On Tuesday, BUILD brought more than 100 people to the school board meeting to support Superintendent Dr. Santelises in her demand of a March 27 deadline to resolve the $130 million gap. BUILD joins with Baltimoreans for Educational Equity and the Baltimore Education Coalition in calling for a three-year solution to bridge the gap until the Kirwan Commission creates a new funding formula.
