Students–if you need money to help pay for school, especially if the Governor and Legislature ignore us and raise your tuition, you may be eligible for one of these scholarships!
We WANT to give money away (but only responsibly, of course). Help us do it!
Faculty: Help spread the word.
This article from CBS Philly should sound two chords at once:
1. PASSHE’s position in the Legislature is improving; even some very conservative Republicans, who otherwise don’t support much public anything, seem to be on board with protecting at least most of our budget allocation.
2. The reason the Legislature is coming around to this position is that WE ARE MAKING THEM. It’s our efforts on the streets, in the press, in hallways, and everywhere else that are pushing an otherwise not-often-friendly legislature in the right direction.
The upshot is, as our colleague Cherise Pollard (who pointed me to this link) put it, we have to keep working. We should take this news as ENCOURAGING, but it’s encouraging us to KEEP PUSHING.
Tired of getting yelled at in ALL CAPS? Show us what you’re doing to protect our schools and we won’t have to :).
