"Over the past two years, our town halls have helped to establish a community-led agenda to restore resources to our schools. We put a full-time nurse and counselor back in every public school, restored water access in our school buildings, and worked to end split grades and massive overcrowding. Our Philly Schools Town Hall is coming to the Northwest to hear what you have to say about class size, climate, and safety in schools, and the quality of your school facilities. Tell us what you want the School District to prioritize in its next budget, and let's work together to send that message loud and clear. Community members are encouraged to come to Martin Luther King High School (6100 Stenton Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19138) on December 14th at 6:00 pm, to share their stories and to weigh in on the needs of their schools. Any member of the community is welcome to testify. To RSVP or sign up to speak at the meeting, contact Steve Paul at 215-686-5380 or fill out the form at the invite below."
