BROWARD COUNTY (CBSMiami) – Teachers, parents, and students across Broward County are expected to protest after school Wednesday to end what they call a crisis in Broward County Public Schools.
The website, Broward Schools Watch, claims Broward County Public School officials “are playing a shell game with the money that is meant for our kids’ schools. We need to let them know that we are watching them. We won’t let them ruin the future of our schools.”READ MORE: Miami-Dade Police Confirm Shooting Death Of Rapper Wavy Navy Pooh Near Zoo Miami
The protests, taking place all over the County, are leading up a School Board Hearing on March 10 at 5:00 p.m. at Plantation High School where school board members are expected to vote on a budget for the upcoming year.READ MORE: Live Updates: Hostage Situation At Texas Synagogue
“We need the public to help us stop the shell game being played by Superintendent Runcie and his slick CFO Judy Marte,” said Anna Fusco, president of the BTU in a press release. “They have mismanaged money and continue to put our students and educators last.
