Pennsylvania’s for Funding Public Education
After cutting $860 million from PA public schools last year, Gov. Corbett calls for additional cuts in his proposed 2012-2013 state budget. The governor’s proposal calls for $100 million in additional cuts to public schools. If the governor’s plan is approved, public schools will have lost nearly $1 billion since he took office. The effects of these decisions are impacting our children. Schools are forced to eliminate programs such as kindergarten, music, art, library and transportation. Teaching staff, janitors, cafeteria staff and paraprofessionals have also been laid off which directly increases classroom size and diminishes quality services that your child is to receive. Sign the petition below telling our state legislators you want them to reinstate the funding to our public schools, NOW.
