Stop the cutting of school counselors from the School District of Phila.

    1. Petition by

      Philly Counselors United

The School District of Philadelphia has been severely underfunded by the Governor of Pennsylvania for the past three years. The district's services have been cut year-after-year and we now counselors are on the chopping block. Every student deserves the services provided by a school counselor and we urge you to support our cause.

To:
School District of Philadelphia, City of Philadelphia and State of PA
Stop the cutting of school counselors from the School District of Phila.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Sadly, Philly schools are on a decline and losing more counsellors will only hasten it. Let's at least SLOW DOWN this descent for now, until we can reverse the course of the school district. This was one reason we moved out of Phila.

      I am a school counselor in Boston. Students need a safe place to go and a single point of contact for all post high school conversations. Counselors are far too important, especially in cities, to eliminate!

      This shouldn't even be a debate. This is wrong on so many levels.

      Counselors play a daily role in the lives of students and faculty. They are the bridge between home life and school for many students and counselors are highly trained professionals who serve all aspects of the school community.

      I am a retired school counselor after serving fourty years with students in public schools. I still meet my former students everywhere who come up to me or on social media who thank me for being there when they needed support. Please do this for the students today.
