Education Rally, Monday at Met Park

From the Times Union

Save Duval Schools and the Duval County Council of PTAs are teaming together to coordinate a rally to oppose education cuts proposed by Gov. Rick Scott.

The rally is scheduled for Monday at Metro Park, with gates opening at 4 p.m. and the events starting at 5 p.m.

"We don't believe that cuts to publics schools are what this community wants for its children," said Colleen Wood, executive director of Save Duval Schools.

Woody's Bar-B-Q will help supply food for the rally with the first 500 people getting chicken dinners.

The event will feature a letter-writing station for people to contact their elected officials. The district's five finalists for teacher of the year will also be honored.
