Sex And The City star Cynthia Nixon has loaned her star power to aid a campaign against New York City education administrators' plans to slash school budgets.
On Monday (02Jun08), Nixon - who plays lawyer Miranda Hobbes in the TV hit-turned-blockbuster-film - led a rally of hundreds of educators and parents opposed to monetary cuts at Manhattan's Stuyvesant High School, reports the New York Daily News.
Addressing the protesters, Nixon slammed New York schools Chancellor Joel Klein for claiming the state's education system has forced him to make severe cuts at schools like Stuyvesant, while sparing other struggling schools.
Nixon said: "I'm here today not only with parents from my children's schools on the upper West Side, but with parents from high-needs schools and high-performing schools all across the city.
"I think it's outrageous and we want to make as much noise as we can."
Nixon has two children: Samantha, 11, and Charles Ezekiel, five.
