Jonathan Cetel is the founding executive director of PennCAN. He lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Today, PennCAN is proud to join the Coalition for Effective Teaching, a diverse collection of organizations united by our common commitment to doing what’s best for Pennsylvania kids.

Along with the Urban League of Philadelphia, Public Citizens for Children and Youth, the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and other local groups, PennCAN believes that the upcoming teacher contract negotiations in Philadelphia are a critical opportunity to reach a decision that puts students and the quality of their learning first.

And the best thing for our kids is a resolution that protects and rewards great teachers.

You can learn more about the coalition and what we support here.

PennCAN has been hard at work at the Capitol speaking up for policies that will reward excellent teachers in Pennsylvania, such as quality-blind layoffs and tenure reform. That’s why we’re proud to stand with local leaders advocating for similar principles in Philadelphia.

We hope you’ll join us so that together we can create a model for future policies that strengthen teaching across our state.

Thank you and I hope you, too, will support the coalition.
