Town Hall to bring together parents, teachers and administrators to address schools' funding challenges

Posted By on Thu, Nov 29, 2012 at 9:03 AM

The Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers and the Pennsylvania Interfaith Impact Network are holding a town hall tonight, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to brainstorm solutions to the achievement gap in the public schools.

It is being held at the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, 616 North Highland Ave, Pittsburgh PA 15206.

"Recently parents, teachers and administrators have been pitted against one another in the effort to deal with funding cuts and other issues. But PIIN believes that if these critical stake holders work together solutions will be more effective," according to the press release the groups sent out announcing the town hall.

The town hall will include breakout groups of parents, teachers and administrators from the same schools working to identify school specific issues.
