In case you haven’t seen it elsewhere, I’m putting it here: a bunch of us will be standing in the cold starting tomorrow at 4:30 PM to protest the $50 million proposed budget cuts from the Boston Public Schools’ budget. We don’t have the backing of The Boston Foundation, the Gates Foundation, The Barr Foundations, or any of the other people trying to destroy public education with the complicity of our elected officials. All we’ve got is ourselves and our voices. So bring ’em.
This isn’t just about the schools: it’s about whether Boston is going to be an actual city where people make their homes and raise their families, or whether it’s going to be some kind of dystopian Disneyland for rich 20somethings who live in the new luxury buildings until they can afford a single-family in Wellesley.
These budget cuts are a planned injustice on a massive scale. Please come out and add your voice to the small, vocal, and entrenched group of Bostonians who want the city to work for everyone. Here’s the info.
