PITTSBURGH – Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers President Nina Esposito-Visgitis issued the following statement in response to Governor Wolf’s Budget Address:
The Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers continues to stand behind Governor Wolf as he fights to provide all of Pennsylvania’s students with the schools that they deserve. We are proud to have a pro-education governor in Harrisburg who believes that education funding is not something that you cut. We need to invest in our schools and our students because they are the future. Our schools needed this funding last year and the same is true today. We urge state legislators to get to work and pass a state budget that funds our schools.
