Full Funding Friday at Blaine Elementary in North Philly

Parents, school staff and community members were out in force this morning at Blaine elementary drawing attention to the impact of budget cuts on this school and at schools throughout the city.  Upwards of 96% of the students come from economically disadvantaged families and 20% have disabilities.   Blaine has no full time counselor or nurse and hasn’t had a librarian for years.   Speakers called for the state and city to come up with more funding and specifically demanded City Council pass Wilson Goode’s proposed legislation to eliminate tax abatements on the School District portion of property taxes. DSC00367 DSC00346 DSC00370 DSC00364 DSC00356 DSC00336
