The best part of my job is meeting educators, parents and students from across the state who are dedicated to improving our public schools.
Today I get to introduce you to a few of them.
In PennCAN’s new video series, four advocates share their experiences with a stagnant system and explain why they’re urging lawmakers to reward excellence and give students the freedom to succeed.
One advocate is a principal serving the kids from the neighborhood where he grew up. Another is a former teacher who witnessed the devastating impact seniority-based layoffs had on her school. And another is a mother of two describing her neighborhood school’s transformation from bad to great.
Their stories may be different, but each of these advocates has one thing in common: an unrelenting conviction that great schools change everything.
Please take a minute to hear what they have to say and ask your family and friends to do the same.
