Event Details

We are facing an Education Emergency in Philadelphia!

 

Outside Consultants are proposing to destroy the Philadelphia Public School System and cut thousands of living wage jobs!

The proposal: 

  • Close 64 schools;
  • Destroy thousands of living wage jobs  and replace them with low wage jobs
  • Turnover many of the remaining schools to private Charter operators

The proposal  does not talk about things that are known to work in improving education:

  • Lowering class size
  • A highly qualified, experienced teacher in every classroom
  • Clean and safe schools

This is a fast moving train, with plan to vote on this proposal by the end of May.

TIME TO STAND UP!    For good schools, for good paying jobs and for our entire city!!
