Rally for schools Dec. 12

There will be an anti-school spend­ing cuts rally at 3:45 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 12, at Bustleton and Cottman av­en­ues.

The rally, sponsored by the Phil­adelphia Co­ali­tion Ad­voc­at­ing for Pub­lic Schools and Par­ents United for Pub­lic Edu­ca­tion, will fo­cus on how dis­trict fund­ing cuts have put chil­dren at risk of aca­dem­ic fail­ure. Ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease is­sued by the groups last week, budget cuts have left schools un­der­staffed and chil­dren un­der­served. 

The groups want the state to ad­opt a for­mula that will guar­an­tee the city’s schools get all the funds they need. ••
