Rise Up To Save Public Charter Schools!
There's a new initiative that will ensure the voices of charter school parents, educators, and supporters can't be ignored in Harrisburg!
They call this new movement 143K Rising to represent all of the 143,000 students currently attending one of PA's public charter schools and the thousands more on waitlists.
Take a few minutes to explore the NEW WEBSITE and sign-up to join the movement!
Have You Seen This Movie?
YOU SHOULD. IT'S A FANTASTIC MOVIE!
"Harriet" is a new movie in the theaters that powerfully portrays the courage and strength of an American Hero, Harriet Tubman. Like the Gillingham Family, she was a conductor on the Underground Railroad leading slaves to freedom!
