Petitioning City of Richmond, City Council and 9 others

Fully fund Richmond Public Schools by restoring funds cut by the mayor from the fiscal year 2015 budget.

The public schools in Richmond, Virginia, are funded primarily by money from the Commonwealth of Virginia and the City of Richmond. In recent years, although the enrollment in the school division has been relatively constant, the portion of the City's general fund that is spent to support the schools has decreased from nearly 25% to just over 20%. This percentage is less than almost every other school system in the state. This year the City's mayor has submitted an overall budget that cuts 3.8 million in City funds from the School Board's proposed budget. If the City Council does not restore these funds the children in Richmond will not be getting the best education we can provide them.

This petition is to inform the City Council that we are tired of our schools being underfunded. We expect them to restore the funds that were cut from the school budget by the mayor.
