Students rally at Bronx County building to demand more money for education
Students, parents, teachers and the schools chancellor chanted "We want it know" as they rallied on the steps of the Bronx County building to demand money for education in the Bronx.
Schools Chancellor Joel Klein says Bronx schools have been shortchanged long enough by the state. He says everyone is entitled to an equal education but that's not happening now.
Students from 40 schools attended the rally hoping to make a difference in their education. Despite plans to open 22 new small schools in the Bronx next year, protesters say more money is needed to reduce overcrowding.
The protesters made it known that they will continue to rally until Bronx schools receive more funding.
