A couple of hundred protesters spent early Saturday afternoon at the Capitol, chanting, “Fund Our Teachers,” and “Save Our Schools.”
It’s the same basic chant they use in good budgetary times and bad.
It’s uncertain who they are protesting. The House Democrats passed a budget that the Dunleavy Administration says does not fund Fiscal Year 2020 education, but forward funds 2021 education.
The Attorney General this week issued the opinion that says last year’s forward funding for education for the next fiscal year was imaginary, because no actual funds were set aside.
