This headline is what happens when a right-wing Republican like Governor Corbett controls education funding in your state:
“Schools May Not Open Due to Budget Crisis.”
And that almost became a reality for more than 140,000 schoolchildren and their parents because of Governor Corbett’s $1 billion in funding cuts that removed 18,000 teachers from classrooms, increased class sizes, and forced local communities to raise property taxes.
I believe that all of us have a stake in the quality of the education our children receive, because it’s the key to good jobs and a secure middle class.
And I will fight everyday to ensure that all schoolchildren have a world-class public education system — but we need you in the fight here in Pennsylvania to help make it happen.
Will you join me and send a message to Governor Corbett and national Republicans to end their war on public education?
