Rally for public education funding at Capitol


ALBANY, N.Y. – Dozens of students and education advocates flooded the Capitol Wednesday morning to push to get billion dollars more for public education in the state budget.

Those at the rally chatted and sang hoping to convince Governor Cuomo to reserve $1.9 billion of the state budget for New York schools.

Advocates said money would work to shrink classroom sizes and restore cuts districts have had to make the past couple years.

A petition was dropped off at the governor's office calling for the added money after the rally.
