STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, JAN. 9, 2019....About two dozen lawmakers and the mayors of Boston, Easthampton, Holyoke, Lawrence and Worcester joined advocates and educators Wednesday to call for passage of a new education funding reform bill that could deliver up to $2 billion more to Massachusetts schools.

"If we want to address racism in our communities, let's fund education," Boston Mayor Martin Walsh said Wednesday, surrounded by education advocates and elected officials from around the state. [Photo: Sam Doran/SHNS]

"Let's enact this bill into law before the start of the next school year," Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz said at the crowded State House press conference.
