Our Schools are Far from Nonviolent: PSU's Response to SDP Statement on Persistently Dangerous List

Our Schools are Far from Nonviolent: PSU's Re…

By The Philadelphia Student Union on Sep-05-2014

The School District of Philadelphia announced yesterday that there are no Philadelphia schools on the state’s Persistently Dangerous Schools List. There has been a lot of work done to reduce violent incidents in school and build strong school communities and it shows in these changes. We also know that there is still a lot of work to be done. While these schools may no longer be “dangerous” in the way that the state defines that, they still pose a danger to the future of all of Philadelphia’s students by not providing them with the resources they need to be successful.

Saturday Meetings

Saturday Meetings are a weekly space for students from across the city to learn and work together.  We learn about issues like racism, sexism and poverty. We participate in fun activities to learn the skills it takes to be a leader. We also work on upcoming events and campaigns. 

City Wide

The Philadelphia Student Union runs citywide campaigns that bring together students from all of our chapters and additional schools to improve school district policies and practices. 

The Union Rep

The Union Rep is the bi-annual student-written newsletter of the Philadelphia Student Union. Students write about issues in their schools, recent PSU actions, and our experiences as students in Philadelphia.
