Riverside University HS students, teachers rally against proposed budget cuts

MILWAUKEE -- Riverside University High School students, parents, and teachers on Tuesday, April 10 will rally to urge the Milwaukee Public Schools Board of Directors to reject a proposed five percent cut to school budgets throughout the MPS system.

If the cuts are approved, it is estimated that Riverside High will lose $250,000 worth of supplies, technology, and transportation.

“It’s not just teachers. It’s also a lot of kids and I think it’s great that they understand they are the ones that are going to suffer the most from anything," said John Troy, math teacher.
