Philadelphia Teacher Union Rally Today
Philadelphia Teacher Union officials are calling a rally today, not affiliated with the absence of 1200 teachers in a protest organized by the Caucus of Working Educators. Claire Sasko has the developing story on phillymag.com.
The PFT is holding a rally after school today – but the organization is not officially tied to the absences and separate protest events happening throughout the day, which include a rally that kicked off around 7:30 a.m. outside the Philadelphia School District headquarters near Broad and Spring Garden streets.
About 200 teachers have joined that demonstration, which (along with the absences) was organized by the Caucus of Working Educators and will include instructors from Masterman, Franklin Learning Center, Central High School, the U School and Mifflin Elementary, among other schools, according to Philly.com.
