The disparity in funding and academic success between schools in CMS is depressing. High-poverty schools lag significantly behind low-poverty schools in every indicator of academic success, while these schools also receive significantly less funding than their low-poverty counterparts. Is this a coincidence? Likely not, investment in our schools correlates directly with academic success. Let's fix this problem for our kids.

County tax revenues make up approximately 30% of the CMS budget. We can take one more step toward solving the inequality problem by demanding a 5% reallocation of funding from low-poverty high schools to high-poverty high schools. Let's demand more for our kids. Lobby the school board for a 5% funding reallocation.
