Budget Reaction from Legislators

It is evident in this budget that Governor Corbett does not support public education, the students who attend public schools, local communities that are working to recover from the economic downturn or the future workforce of Pennsylvania.   His proposals and his actions show that his priorities are drastically different from the majority of Pennsylvanians.  It is a question of values and Pennsylvanians value a quality education for EVERY child.

The Governor’s proposal starts the process, but it isn’t all decided: our legislators can play an important role in standing up for our priorities.  Last year, public outcry helped prevent nearly $300 million in additional cuts.  We heard from the Governor, and we know where he stands.  Now, we need to ask our legislators: what is your position on supporting our schools?
