Philly Teachers, It’s Our Turn to Fight for Public Schools!
All over the country, teachers are in the spotlight - flooding the capital in West Virginia, sharing photos of dismal conditions in Oklahoma, walking out and shutting down twenty school districts in Kentucky. These teachers are fighting. And they’re winning-- BIG. In Philly, we face the same problems - crumbling buildings, crowded classrooms, students with overwhelming needs, and the tired excuse that “there is no money” for our schools.
What: City Council Hearing where educators, parents, and students will PACK THE ROOM to demand funding for Philly Schools!
When & Where: May 8th, 5pm- City Council
Why: It’s our turn! We have a plan to bring up to $300 million to the education budget - not by overtaxing working people but by demanding that corporations, developers, and big non-profits like Penn pay their fair share.
Help us show City Council the conditions that Philly’s students and educators endure every day:
Submit photos and video of the conditions in your school, and we will put together a video to make it clear to City Council that our students and schools deserve better. Email photos and video to [email protected] by Thursday, May 3rd. All educators, parents, and students are invited to submit. Click here for more info.
