March4Schools protest against proposed budget plan

From the website -

Late last night the governor and Republican leadership struck a budget deal that will devastate Arizona and its public schools if passed by the legislature. Apparently support for the budget is a razor thin margin. It is not to late to defeat this budget and you can help.

Tomorrow, Saturday June 27, hundreds of parents, teachers, and community leaders will protest a backroom budget deal crafted by Republican leaders in the Arizona legislature and Governor Brewer. Reports from the capitol indicate the budget bills that include massive cuts to public education and other vital health and human services will be heard in House Appropriations tomorrow morning.
