Students to protest today over funding of city schools

April 05, 2004

City students are expected to protest today outside the Circuit Court of Baltimore, 111 N. Calvert St., saying that the state is in violation of a court order to pay the city schools hundreds of millions more in annual funding.

The 11 a.m. protest is being organized by students of the Algebra Project, a citywide peer-tutoring program.

The students are protesting what they say is the state's failure to comply with Bradford vs. Maryland State Board of Education, in which city schools were found to be underfunded by at least $2,000 a student.
