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.

Alvin Thornton, who chaired a commission on Maryland school funding reforms, spoke Thursday night to roughly 200 people gathered in front of the Maryland State House on a rainy evening.

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