Tell Gov. Corbett and the PA State Legislature to LEAVE OUR FUNDING ALONE!!
Once again, the PA State Legislature and now Gov. Corbett are threatening to cut Temple's funding. This drastic mistake could result in Temple losing 20-30% of its current funding and require the school not only to cut vital student services but to RAISE YOUR TUITION! As students we represent the very future they claim to want to protect. We are the future teachers, lawyers, social workers, doctors, nurses, politicians, actors, etc. and they want to DENY US AN EDUCATION! Temple is the destination for so many students because of its affordability, and what would we do if that changed?! So many of our friends--and maybe even YOU--could NOT afford to attend anymore. I know you may think, “What can MY ONE VOICE DO?” You may have been told that petitions and marches don't matter, that no one will care. Well, maybe one voice isn't enough, but if we work together, we will be a loud chorus screaming loud and clear that WE ARE TEMPLE OWLS, FIRED UP about KEEPING OUR FUNDING! Tell Gov. Corbett if he wants another term in office and if he truly cares about this state, then he will make cuts in other areas of the budget, but not where it counts the most. Tell him and the legislature to STOP PLAYING POLITICS WITH OUR FUNDING AND OUR LIVES!!
