School Meeting in Charlottesville
(WDBJ Television, Roanoke, VA)

Unidentified audience members passed a box filled with money around a meeting hall in Charlottesville. One white man spoke to the audience about the lack of state support for the city's schools in the school closing crisis. He said if the state of Virginia refused to allocate taxes to the city of Charlottesville for the operation of schools, then it would be "perfectly proper" for the city government to refuse to allocate its taxes to the state and instead turn it over to the school board.
