Moral Monday demonstrators: Revisit last year’s tax cuts, stop the cuts to education (audio postcard)

Educators, parents, and concerned citizens returned to the legislature Monday evening urging lawmakers to find a better way to fund education. Demonstrators voiced their displeasure at budget plans that would cut teaching assistants, school nurses, textbook funds, and the university system to cover teacher pay raises this year. Several in the crowd on Halifax Mall said it was time to find new revenue and fully fund the state’s educational needs.
