Governor Tom Corbett passed a budget that shows his disdain for public education, I.e., the future of the state.

Philadelphia got the back of his hand. The burden of paying down the debt created by the state’s own School Reform Commission (which reforms nothing) will be placed on the working class, while big corporations skip away with no responsibility.

One plan, says columnist Will Bunch, is to turn the schools into chicken coops, where nothing happens but bare bones academics because everything else was stripped away by layoffs.

Blogger Yinzercation says the budget doesn’t reach the funding levels of 2008-09.

This governor and legislature and business community don’t care about the children or the future of the state. They would not do to their own children what they are doing to other people’s children.
