Superintendent James Merrill to Address the
Need for Increased Support of Public Education

Superintendent James G. Merrill will be a guest speaker at a “Rally to Restore Public Education Funding.” The event is designed to address the dramatic reductions in the Commonwealth of Virginia’s funding of public education over recent years - more than $1 billion since 2009. Sponsored by the Virginia Education Association, the event will be held Saturday, March 3 at 10:30 a.m. at Mount Trashmore.

Dr. Merrill will briefly address dwindling state support, increasing mandates and the need for stakeholders to speak out about their belief in public education. Other speakers will include Shelly Jones, president of the Virginia Beach Council of PTAs, and Dominic Melito, president of the Virginia Beach Education Association.
