Kids, Cuts, and Consequences: Pocono Mountain
What happened when Gov. Tom Corbett cut $4.2 million from the Pocono Mountain public schools? Class sizes increased, PSEA members were furloughed, programs that help kids learn were eliminated.
PSEA members in Pocono Mountain have seen first-hand that these unprecedented funding cuts have consequences.
Who is feeling those consequences?
The kids who learn in Pocono Mountain’s public schools. The parents and families who are wondering why key programs and services have disappeared. The PSEA members who dedicate their lives to public education. And the community that is struggling to find ways to fund its public schools.
In Pocono Mountain, PSEA members spoke out about these cuts - and the consequences they are having on the kids they teach.
They are telling their stories, as no one else can.
