Parents, students protest child care cuts at Borough Hall

BROOKLYN - Parents and students joined politicians at Borough Hall today to protest Mayor Michael Bloomberg's proposed cuts to child care and after-school programs.

According to the Campaign for Children, the proposed budget cuts would affect more than 47,000 children. Students who attend programs at child care centers say they do not want them to be eliminated.

The Campaign for Children says even if the cuts are not approved, some children will still be left out of the programs because of a systematic decrease in funding.
