On March 21st 2011, 200 Common Ground members gathered to discuss next steps for our Education Initiative “It’s About Our Children.” We learned how the budget process at the state level works. We heard from parents and children that will be affected by the looming budget cuts in our state, and we learned how the cuts will affect our schools. See photos and some of the details here.
Our goal is to work together with local and state leaders to make our schools better.
We are currently in our research phase. We are meeting with people who are involved in Education across our public, charter and choice school landscape. After we finish our research phase, we will decide on an issue that our member organizations can get behind and work to achieve for our children. Stay tuned!
