Join fellow Philadelphia lawyers to tell City Council that Philadelphia cannot function without good public schools, and high-quality public schools require adequate funding.
Philadelphia’s schools can’t provide the basic programs and services our children need to have an opportunity to learn —class sizes have grown, counselors and nurses reduced, libraries closed. The local economy on which the legal community depends will continue to decline without a strong system of public education.
While the state education budget continues to be inadequate and inequitable, there are options to provide local funding. City Council can move on those options now, but needs encouragement to secure the resources necessary for our schools.
WHO: Leading Philadelphia Attorneys
WHAT: Take Action on School Funding
WHERE: Outside City Hall, North Broad Street entrance
