FIRST WEEK OF SCHOOL COMCAST ACTION

Our schools, once again, are opening with uncertain funding and without the resources to offer all children a quality education.   One front in the struggle is getting corporations to pay their fair share.   In Philadelphia that fight is now centered on COMCAST which has made huge profits from it’s cable franchise while avoiding paying millions in  school property taxes, thanks to tax abatements.

Comcast’s 15 year franchise is up for renewal this year and  CAP-COMCAST, a city wide coalition that includes PCAPS,  is fighting for an agreement that will include up to 35 million dollars in funding for a school technology teacher in every school and computer access for all students.   We are asking the Mayor and City Council to endorse this demand.   And we are asking parents, school workers, students and the whole community to support this fight.

TIME FOR COMCAST TO PAY ITS FAIR SHARE!
