Come to Harrisburg to Speak Up for Public Education

Governor Corbett’s “election-year” budget is falling apart. Revenue projections are down and Corbett and state legislators are looking to make more than $1.2 billion in cuts to his proposed 2014-2015 budget.

Lobbyists will be swarming the Capitol in the month of June and we need to be there, too.  

Who: Parents, community members, school board members, public education advocates

•  Come on your own, with a friend, or with a group

What: Citizen Presence in Harrisburg to Speak Up for Fair and Adequate Funding for Public Education

• We will be meeting with our legislators. Click here to find your state senator and representative. Call and set up a meeting in their Capitol office for the date that you will be coming to Harrisburg.

When:  Wednesday, June 18, Monday, June 23, and Monday, June 30

• Education Voters will have a table with information from 9:30-3:30 all three days. You can plan to make a quick trip to talk to your legislators or plan to spend the day in the Capitol halls making sure lawmakers know Pennsylvanians care about public schools in PA.

Where: Find Education Voters at a table in the Main Rotunda

• We will have information and talking points to help you make the most of your time. 

Why: Legislators will be deciding what they will fund and what they will cut in this year’s budget

• We need to send a message that properly funding public education should be their top priority. 

Join Pennsylvanians from throughout the commonwealth as we send a loud and clear message that after three years of balancing the state budget on the backs of Pennsylvania’s public school children, it is time for our state government to do what is right and pass a fair budget that will provide students with the opportunities they need to meet state standards and be successful after they graduate.
