Tell Charlie Baker Our Kids Are Worth More

This petition had 332 supporters

At a time when we should be investing in the future of our students, Governor Charlie Baker wants to give many cities and towns in Massachusetts less state education aid than last year. His budget will force communities to make difficult cuts to vital programs and services.

Under Baker’s plan, dozens of school districts will receive less education funding from the state than in previous years, and many others will receive small increases that still leave them with fewer dollars per student. You can see the list of communities receiving less aid here.

The Foundation Budget Review Commission, a bipartisan statewide commission, recently reported that public schools in our state are already underfunded by more than $1 billion. Now is not the time to be shortchanging our schools.

Tell Charlie Baker that our kids are worth more and it’s about time he fully funds public schools.
