Fund Our Schools Not Prisons!
"NO EDUCATION, NO WHAT? NO EDUCATION, NO LIFE!" That was just one of many chants youth from all over the city yelled as they headed down Broad st. toward The School District of Philadelphia. On March 30th, the Philadelphia Student Union, along with dozens of other organizers, rallied at 13th Filbert and Temple University, before meeting to protest and speak out against Gov. Corbett's proposal to cut funding from our area's schools by 50 percent, while raising funding for prisons by at least 11 percent. Check out what the people who came out had to say.
