To be delivered to: State Senator Jay Costa, D-Allegheny, State Senator Vincent Hughes, D-Phila./Montgomery, State Senator Dominic Pileggi, R-Delaware, State Senator Joseph Scarnati, R-Jefferson, and Governor Tom Corbett
Just like Governor Scott Walker attacked collective bargaining rights of workers in Wisconsin, Governor Tom Corbett is bent on destroying public education in Pennsylvania.
We need to take action now and STOP the right-wing campaign to dismantle public education by cutting school budgets and privatizing schools. It hurts our children now and it jeopardizes their future. It is also killing good jobs that our economy urgently needs. Many public school workers also are parents of school-age children. These families will get hit twice, with their kids losing access to decent public schools and parents losing jobs.
There’s still a chance to save schools and jobs before budget talks end. Let’s put our children’s future above politics. Protect public education in Pennsylvania!
--Steve Siebert, Philadelphia Schools Maintenance Worker
