Pen signing a letter Spiritual and Faith Leaders send letter to legislators supporting fair funding Mercury 5-15-19
Letter: Poorer Pennsylvania school districts remain underfunded. This is a letter to be sent to Pennsylvania Legislators. As faith leaders in the Pottstown borough and surrounding area, we care deeply about the well-being of our community. We recognize that while all people have been created equal, they don’t all receive equal opportunities to succeed. Often, issues of multi-generational poverty, systemic racism and political indifference toward these communities mean that some children grow up with a significant lack of opportunities. This has certainly been the case for the children in Pottstown, which has struggled for years with a number of socio-economic challenges. Notably among these challenges has been the issue of school funding. CLICK HERE TO READ THE ENTIRE LETTER.
