Chester County Coalition for Public Education
Senator Dinniman convened the Chester County Coalition for Public Education to unite residents, teachers, parents and taxpayers who support public schools and public education in our region.
The group, which comprises four committees, is dedicated to strengthening local public schools through advocacy, outreach, community involvement and lobbying efforts.
“Over the last two years, the Corbett administration has stripped more than $900 million in funding from our schools. This year, the governor is calling for restoring a fraction of that funding and supplementing it with savings that are tied to pension and liquor reform plans – plans that may never materialize.,” Dinniman said. “In Chester County we deeply value public education, and we believe that providing public schools for all Pennsylvania children is not only our constitutional obligation but simply the right thing to do.”
The Chester County Coalition for Public Education is a nonpolitical organization open to all residents. Anyone who is interested in supporting public education is encouraged to come out to a meeting and get involved.
“This issue affects every Pennsylvanian – from current students and their families, to teachers and professors, to retired homeowners, to high school students and prospective college students,” Dinniman said. “The Chester County Coalition for Public Education is about investing in and supporting the children and young adults who will lead us into the future.”
