Event description

Description

Join Councilman Hakim Jones & Public Citizens for Children and Youth on November 17th as we head to the State Capitol in standing for Public Education Fair Funding for all! 1000 advocates from every school district in the state will meet in Harrisburg to send a message to legislators that we need them to stand up for PA students’ right to a high quality education.

During this summit, you will meet other leaders and advocates from around the state who, like you, want to lead the charge for change. You will leave with a network and tools to lead other advocates in your community and encourage them to join the fight. Pennsylvania’s school funding system is broken. It is unfair and inadequate.

  • Pennsylvania has the widest funding gap between wealthy and poor school districts of any state in the country, with the wealthiest school districts spending 33% more on each student than the poorest districts. Most Pennsylvania’s public schools are inadequately funded.
  • Pennsylvania ranks 47th in state share for education. As a result, four of every five Pennsylvania school districts do not spend an amount adequate to provide all students the resources needed to have a fair chance to succeed. Your presence and your voice needs to be heard!

Transportation and Lunch Will be Provided at no cost!
