We Need Healthy School Buildings – Sign the Petition

131109-Philly-schools-mold

The existence of dangerous hazards in schools, like mold, lead, asbestos, insect infestation and buildings that are either too hot or too cold pose a serious threat to the welfare of our students.

Budget problems and years of deferred maintenance are part of the problem here. But rather than face up to it, the District has attempted to sweep the issue under the rug and is thwarting a federally funded effort to study these problems and come up with a plan for dealing with them.

PHILAPOSH, a union supported group that campaigns for better health and safety conditions on the job, has launched a petition demanding the the District cooperate with this study as a first step toward addressing this serious issue. The petition can be downloaded from our tools and resources page here

    We need to DEMAND, by any means necessary, that the REAL Public Schools be appropriately funded, not by Cigarette money for Christ sake, but by the Government in Harrisburg. The charter lie movement with it’s super rich shot callers, must be denied access to PUBLIC money.
    P.S. There’s NO need to “school” Billy Green about local control. He simply works full time against the best interests of the kids and families of Philly and for the corporate dictatorship. Billy puts the “dic” into dictatorship.
