Bronx students rally for money to ease overcrowding in city schools
Some Bronx students say their high schools are too crowded. Now they're rallying for more tax money to be spent to reduce their class size. Students are trying to urge Mayor Bloomberg (R-NY) and other state leaders to extend the millionaire?s tax, which comes from those with an income of $500,000 or more. Some of those tax dollars are used for education, but the tax is set to expire this month. The rally coincides with a newly released report that says many schools, like Walton High School, are overcrowded and under funded.
