PA Statewide Bake Sale for Public Education
The week of April 9th, parents and community groups will be hosting local mock “Bake Sales” throughout the Commonwealth to send a message to Governor Corbett and the State Legislature: There are NOT enough cookies in the state of Pennsylvania to protect our children from the damage that is BEING DONE to the Commonwealth’s schools!
THIS IS NOT A REAL BAKE SALE! This is an opportunity for Pennsylvanians to raise their voices together in support of Pennsylvania’s public schools.
Learn more about the these mock bake sales and how you can host one in your own community. I’m sure some of you are thinking: Why a bake sale? Send us any questions you may have.
If it doesn’t make sense for you to hold a bake sale, we are asking people to drop off cookies to their State Representative with this message: The Constitution of Pennsylvania says we should provide a “thorough and efficient” education. In the past year, we have cut about $900 million in support to our schools and now those cuts are being proposed again for next year. We would have to sell 1.8 BILLION cookies to make up for those funding cuts!
