Make Schools Safe from Bullying

One out of three U.S. students say they have been bullied at school. U.S. Sen. Bob Casey of PA is one of several lawmakers in Washington who wants to do something about it.

Sen. Casey joined students and educators in October 2017 to discuss his anti-bullying legislation in Norristown. His bill, the Safe School Improvement Act, would require school districts that receive federal education funds to adopt codes of conduct specifically prohibiting bullying and harassment. The goal is to encourage more districts to implement effective prevention programs to respond to incidents of bullying and harassment.

Email your federal lawmakers today and urge them to support Sen. Casey's Safe School Improvement Act

 
School Funding

State lawmakers in Harrisburg are negotiating the details of a revenue plan to pay for the budget they adopted in June 2017. That bipartisan budget increases investments in public schools, but without a responsible plan to pay for it, those investments are at risk. This would be a problem across the state, because districts based their 2017-18 programs on these funds.

Email your lawmakers and urge them to adopt a responsible revenue plan that maintains key investments in our schools.

Partners for Public Education have done an amazing job as advocates, helping our state lawmakers better understand just how important it is to make needed investments in our public schools. On behalf of Pennsylvania's 1.7 million public school students and their families, thank you.
