Parents and Teachers Sit In lobby of Corbett’s office.

Yesterday, October 9th, at 4:00 PM, the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign, along with school parents, students, and teachers, attempted to hold mock auction inside the Governor’s office on the 11th floor of the Bellvue Stratford on South Broad St.   Police blocked access to the elevators and about fifty people sat down in the lobby.   PPEHRC leader and Moffat parent Cheri Honkala was arrested.    The demonstration was in response to the SRC’s decision to cut teachers’ health benefits, as well as the long term decline in school funding.
