Have you head about the teachers and staff in Chester Upland, PA that are returning to work without any pay?? (I am sure BATs have!!!) But we need to make sure the rest of the world hears about them!
It is important for the public to see that public schools employees and concerned community members will go above and beyond. We keep giving them stories that validate this and soon the truth cannot be denied.
But the truly important part of their story is that a solution was offered to help the district in the form of a reduction of payments to the charter schools. The representatives of the charter schools cried foul and declared that it would be too much of a burden for them.
Diane Ravitch posted about them today… http://dianeravitch.net/…/teachers-and-staff-at-chester-up…/
Community members in the area have started a gofundme for these dedicated people!! http://www.gofundme.com/4v3bftfjk
