Decarcerate PA, the Teacher Action Group, ACT UP, Fight for Philly and many others protest Corbett’s visit to the Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce. During his time as Governor, Corbett has made massive cuts to education, medical assistance, and social services while he is spending 5 million on new prison construction. His recent budget alone proposes 4 million in cuts to higher education, 9 million in cuts to general assistance, and a funding change that cuts another .6 million from Philly’s public schools. More recently the School Reform Commission, an entity created by Harrisburg when the state took control over Philadelphia’s School District in 2001, has put forward a plan to close 64 public schools. Governor Corbett has made his priorities very clear: Corporate tax breaks, mass incarceration and environmental devastation. We demand a different set of priorities for Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania needs quality public schools, stable housing, jobs and job training programs, health care and food access, drug and alcohol treatment programs, community-based reentry services, and non-punitive programs that address the root causes of violence in our communities. Instead of building more prisons we need policy changes that reduce the prison population and reinvest resources in our schools and communities. For more info see: http
