Week of Action for PA Public Schools:

June 10-14, 2024

It takes just a few minutes of your time.

From the comfort of your home.

In the carpool line.

During your lunch break at work.

Ten minutes to help make public education in Pennsylvania better and more equitable for everyone.

On Wednesday, June 12th join thousands of parents, students, teachers, and community members from across PA to SPEAK UP in support of our public schools.

The Pennsylvania courts found that the way the state funds public schools is unconstitutional, because the quality of students’ education is determined by their zip code.

Right now, lawmakers in Harrisburg are debating an historic $1.8 billion increase for public schools as a first step toward delivering on the promise of a great education for every child.

Lawmakers need to hear from their constituents that funding public education should be their TOP priority in the budget this year.

It takes just 10 calls in one day to one legislator for them to mark an issue as important. Be one of those 10!

Mark your calendar today for Wednesday, June 12th — and make a plan to make a difference!
