BALTIMORE STANDING TOGETHER: Watch town hall Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. on WJZ, as leaders address issues the city is facing.

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — More than a thousand people rallied at War Memorial Plaza Monday night to send the message that Baltimore City’s school children deserve more.

City schools are facing a $130 million dollar deficit.

Parents, teachers, principals and city councilmembers made up the huge the crowd.

Mayor Catherine pugh has committed $30 million from the city budget and the state has said it will contribute, but that’s still far less than the $130 million needed.

    End the Standardized testing contracts, get rid of the expensive ed- tech contracts. Get for profit business out of the school budget and let teachers get back to doing what they do best…..teach children! That’s how you make up the $130 million deficit. For profit companies do not need to be taking tax payer money away from the classroom. It’s an easy solution that the politicians and people in charge don’t want to do and the children suffer because of it.
