Our kids deserve better! Rally for education.

There will be a rally outside of the Vancouver School Board Offices on April 26 at 6:30 pm (prior to the Board meeting at 7 pm) and in response to the proposed $5.83 million deficit VSB budget.

The slogan being used is “Our kids deserve better!” – bring your own placards and noise makers or show up early and make them on the spot (supplies will be available)

All parents, kids, teachers, support staff and friends are welcome.

The event is being organized by an ad hoc group “Friends of Public Education” – please spread the word and encourage families and friends to attend.
