Sign our petition to Philadelphia City Council

The state authorized the city to dedicate part of our current sales tax in Philadelphia to school funding, City Council has the power to allocate $120 million as dedicated recurring funding to schools right now and they need to move the legislation and pass it.

Sign our petition to city council asking them to allocate the funding:
The state authorized the city to dedicate part of our current sales tax in Philadelphia to school funding, I am asking you to pass the sales tax extension and dedicate that $120 million in funding for Philadelphia schools. In addition, our schools will need $75 million more in local funding.

Our children continue to be short-changed because of a failure to provide adequate resources to schools. Without sufficient funding, our schools can't provide the basic programs and services our children need to have an opportunity to learn. The state budget continues to be inadequate and unfair; however we can do more at the city level --and we must.
Thanks for making your voice heard on education.
