The $2 billion William Penn Foundation has funded the Philadelphia Student Union for 17 years.

However, the student union does not support the foundation’s radical plan to privatize large numbers of public schools in Philadelphia.

Surprise! The William Penn Foundation will no longer fund the Philadelphia Student Union.

William Penn, the large-hearted man for whom the foundation is named, would not approve.

It’s a shame that the richest members of society use their money to stifle dissent from the plans that they are foisting on the poorest members of society.

The youth of Philadelphia should be listened to, not just the Boston Consulting Group.
