Monthly Constitutional: Deborah Gordon Klehr

Deborah Gordon Klehr, TPS parent and executive director of the Education Law Center, spoke to the 8th grade yesterday as part of their Monthly Constitutional speaker series. She explained the focus of the Center's work – fighting for fair school funding, ensuring equal access, and stopping the school-to-prison pipeline.

Deborah and the students discussed the underfunding of Philadelphia and other Pennsylvania school districts and described the challenges faced by Pennsylvania's most vulnerable students — children living in poverty, children of color, children with disabilities, English language learners, and children experiencing homelessness.  

Deborah was joined by her "favorite" TPSer.
