New Raise Your Hand Coalition Video


Check out the new video by coalition member Amy Smolensky:




Illinois Raise Your Hand is coalition of Chicago public schools, we are pleading with our state representatives to not cut the education budget by $1.3 billion. Illinois is the 49th state in education funding even though they have the 5th highest GDP of all the states. We are asking for sustainable, level funding to prevent massive layoffs of teachers, overcrowded classrooms and cuts to special education, arts, music, language, etc.
