Rally For Schools Takes Place In Rainy Annapolis

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) —  Baltimore students, teachers and school administrators are telling Maryland lawmakers to “keep the promise,” when it comes to schools funding.

The current proposed state budget reduces $94 million for education statewide. Baltimore city would lose about $15 million of that.
