Since the first week of school, the Philadelphia Coalition Advocating for Public Schools (PCAPS) has held weekly events for the coalition’s “Full Funding Fridays” campaign to empower teachers and students to demand more funding for public schools. Each Friday for the last five weeks, PCAPS has rallied with teachers from various elementary, middle, and high schools to spread the word about the tough conditions they and their students have been subjected to. The campaign will continue full steam into November, keeping pressure on Governor Corbett, City Council, and Mayor Nutter to fully fund Philadelphia Public Schools.
