Education Voters Pennsylvania has issued a statewide call to action for today, Wed., May 23, encouraging voters across Pennsylvania to contact their legislators to ask for “fair funding” for public education.
In a prepared statement, Education Voters PA said: “As June begins, state legislators will start to work on their budget proposals and begin negotiating what the final budget will look like. In February, Governor (Tom) Corbett proposed a budget that will cement the $900 million dollar cuts he gave to public education funding. These cuts have lead to increases in class size, the closure of school buildings, the elimination of successful programs such as full-day kindergarten and tutoring and the loss of many instructional and support staff positions. We must invest in our future and that means investing in our students and our public schools.”
Voters in Emmaus and Upper Milford Township are represented by:
PA House – Ryan E. Mackenzie (134th District)
PA House – (131th District)
PA Senate –
According to the Education Voters Pennsylvania website, Education Voters PA is a non-profit, non-partisan organization established in 2007 to promote a pro public education agenda with elected leaders, legislators and the public.
