From their website: "Outraged by the $1 BILLION cut in the state budget that hit our schools last year, a group of Pittsburgh Public School parents started to organize advocacy efforts aimed at the state budget in late 2011. With the Governor’s announcement in early 2012 that he proposed cutting an additional $100 MILLION, that initial group quickly grew into a region-wide movement as folks from across Southwest PA joined the fight to stop this attack on public education. We are committed to great public schools for all students, with adequate, equitable, and sustainable public funding."
