Please sign an online petition to "stop the billion dollar cut" of education.
From: Ron Cowell <firstname.lastname@example.org
STOP THE BILLION DOLLAR CUT!
Please. We need you to take action, today!
EPLC continues to support an unprecedented coalition working together as the Pennsylvania School Funding Campaign.
The budget proposed by Governor Corbett will reduce state funding to school districts by more than $1 billion for the 2011-2012 school year. The implications of this huge cut are being felt throughout the state as school boards are considering very serious program cuts that will significantly reduce learning opportunities for students. This billion dollar cut is bad for students and ultimately bad for local taxpayers as well.
You can help to send a powerful message to Governor Corbett and members of the Pennsylvania Legislature.
Please sign an online petition to the Governor and members of the General Assembly opposing the billion dollar school funding cut proposed for 2011-12.
The website address is www.stopthebilliondollarcut.org.
And please share this website URL with your family, friends and co-workers as soon as possible and urge them also to sign the online petition.
It only takes a couple of minutes, and the more signatures we get from across the state, the more persuasive we can be in our advocacy on behalf of public school funding for next year.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
