Get the glasses here: PEARL ROUND SUNNIES
“get your fashion fix with fashion passionates!”
Philadelphia: High school students walk out of class and march to City Hall to protest severe budget cuts and planned school closings, May 9, 2013.
The budget cuts are absolutely horrific. Here are some of the proposed changes:
- Schools with more than 1,000 students would no longer be required to have librarians or librarian assistants.
- Schools would no longer be required to have counselors, and counselors’ caseloads would no longer be capped.
- Teachers could be assigned to unlimited classes outside their subject area, and high school teachers could be assigned an extra class without pay. There would be no limit on amount of consecutive time taught in a school day.
- There would be no limit on class size
- The district would no longer be required to provide copy machines, or “a sufficient number of instructional materials and textbooks.”
- Counselors would no longer be guaranteed to have rooms with privacy and confidentiality, a telephone, a locked filing cabinet and a door.
There’s more here.
Again, every time I see stuff about this, I’m like “We shouldn’t be calling him ‘Mayor Nutter’ come on guys we’re better than that” and then I realize, again, that it’s his real name. Um, but for real. These budget cuts are downright cruel.
This has been an ongoing problem for the Philly school district. There’s going to be nothing left but charter schools & private schools. The district lacks so many resources to begin with, so cutting more is a huge blow to the public education system.
You know.. but a rather new school in the mostly White Philly burbs has flat screen televisions lining the hallways ..because that is more important than textbooks, teachers & counselors.
-sighs- They’re thinking about closing the elementary school across the street from us. This is ridiculous.
love seeing stuff like this. LOVE seeing youth out in the streets rioting. I wish this would happen every day all the time.
