Pennsylvania Students and Parents Rally for School Choice in Harrisburg
Ever since Pennsylvania’s Senate voted in favor of school choice last month by passing SB1, the pressure on the state House of Representatives to send this important bill to Governor Corbett’s desk has been steadily increasing. Yesterday that pressure was ratcheted up even further when some 2,000 students, parents and other school choice supporters flooded the Capitol Rotunda in Harrisburg demanding educational freedom.
The rally was organized and promoted by school choice movement stalwarts and FreedomWorks coalition allies REACH, Students First and the Catholic Conference, who were all integral to the success of SB1 in the state Senate. As this fight continues in the House, neither FreedomWorks nor our allies will rest until we have achieved our shared goal of putting parents and students in control of Pennsylvania’s school system.
With the fall legislative session scheduled to end on December 14th, it’s more important than ever for the supporters of school choice to make our voices heard in Harrisburg. Please TAKE ACTION by calling or emailing these House Leaders to request their support for school choice and SB1:
