Education Referendum

Ballot Referendum in Richmond, Virginia

Richmond School Modernization Charter Change Campaign, sponsored by the Richmond Crusade for Voters, has placed on November’s ballot a referendum on a City Charter amendment directing the Richmond Mayor to prepare a study of how to improve the poor physical condition of city schools. Hazardous conditions in many city public schools threaten the health of students and teachers. Support for this referendum is an important Environmental Justice initiative by the Falls of the James Group and Virginia Chapter.  This is also an opportunity to modernize the schools with efficiency measures and solar panels.
