Philly Parents Protest School Budget in Harrisburg
Parents of students in the Philadelphia School District departed for Harrisburg Wednesday morning — carrying thousands of letters written by children from 1st through 12th grades — to try to convince state lawmakers to support increased funding for the city’s public schools.
They’re taking some 4,000 letters to Harrisburg. Some of the children who wrote those letters will read them in the Capitol Rotunda.
At this point, the kids can’t do much worse than the mayor at selling the city’s public schools, can they?
