A lot of people will never care about 23 Philadelphia public schools closing. Why will they never care? It does not have any affect on their lives. The majority of parents that send their children to private schools will not fight for the little girl who may have to walk 30 minutes to get to school. That's why it is our job to use eloquent force and direct action in order to save our kids, save our schools, and save our teachers. To succeed in today's competitive world or to to get into the college of your dreams, education is a necessity. Graduates are coming from all over the world to take your son's or daughter's spot in our own colleges. Officials will never think about the big picture so we have to draw it for them. We have to run fundraisers, we have to join hands and let our cry be heard by every man and woman in Philadelphia. The change starts with us. We cannot give up. Schools like Bok and Shaw have been around since my mother was a child. The District has pre-meditated thoughts that successful kids do not come from their schools; let's prove this wrong. Yes this is about money, but if we can build new prisons and a new 9/11 museum, we can keep our schools alive.
