Fall River, MA
I support the Fair Share Amendment because ALL students deserve schools that are fully funded. Our communities benefit from strong public schools, but schools need resources to be strong. Sadly, poor communities struggle year after year with budget cuts and inadequate funding. Whether it’s technology, small class size, or a longer school day, every child deserves access to high-quality public schools.
In my city, our students’ needs have increased but our funding has not. The rising costs of healthcare and special education prevent us from providing them with what they need and deserve. The quality of a child’s education should not be impacted by their zip code. Let’s invest in our future.
