Rally today, March 14, on the Quad at WCU!
See below for details. The announcement was posted on Facebook over the weekend; for the record, and much to my pleasure, this is a student-initiated and organized event. –Seth
On Tuesday March 8th PA Governor Corbett announced his new budget plans. In the new budget he plans to cut funding for higher education by 50%!
At West Chester University we have already seen an increase in tuition for the past three semesters. West Chester University has already made serious cuts to our education. For those of us who value our teachers and the affordability of our education this budget is a slap in the face. We have to take a stand together for the future of Pennsylvania. We cannot win the future if our public education system is continuing to take a shellacking by this Governor and by Governors around the country.
We need to take a stand against this attack on our future!
We are asking for students, faculty and other University workers to join together on the Quad at 3PM to speak out against these cuts and share your own stories of the effects that you have already experienced and will experience if this budget passes.
Please invite your fellow students and co-workers!
