Schools like Spring Garden Elementary have been hard hit with years of budget cuts. This year we have a chance to get the resources our children need. Governor Wolf has proposed a tax on Marcellus shale and other measures to raise over a billion dollars in new revenue for education in a budget that should be passed no later than July 1. But a Republican controlled legislature is blocking the road.

AROS PA, a state wide coalition of 29 groups, has organized a state wide bus tour the last two weeks in June to demonstrate that people across our state, in cities, suburbs, and rural areas, want investment in schools and expect their elected representatives to do the right thing and vote for this budget.

The first stop is Philadelphia where parents, school staff and community members will rally and get on the bus to call and write their elected officials. The last stop will be Harrisburg on July 29th.
