FREA Survey on Budget Priorities
We have been part of a statewide Fund Our Future campaign designed to get our schools the resources they need and deserve. There are now three education funding bills before the MA Legislature. We support the Education Promise Act because of all the bills, the Promise Act would provide Fall River with the greatest amount of funding to meet the needs of all our learners. We want to put forth a statement about what our members believe an ideal budget would include. We need your input to determine our collective priorities. Please respond to the questions with short, concise answers.
