Philadelphia schools have been stripped of nurses, art, music, librarians, extracurricular activities and counselors. Children are being forced into overcrowded classrooms without enough books or paper. They are being put in danger as they cross through unfamiliar and unsafe neighborhoods to get to new schools.
Philadelphia’s children deserve better. But Gov. Corbett, Superintendent Hite, and unelected School Reform Commission members Bill Green, Farah Jimenez, Feather Houstoun, Wendell Prichett and Sylvia Simms continue to push an agenda to starve our schools and hurt our kids.
