Last month, 12-year-old Laporshia Massey died of an asthma attack that started in a school without a nurse on campus.* Her teachers told her, “there’s no nurse, and just to be calm.”* Because of Philly budget cuts, her school’s nurse is only there two days a week, but Laporshia couldn’t wait for another day. She shouldn’t have had to wait another hour. Laporshia listened to her teachers and struggled through her classes. When she got home, her parents rushed her to the hospital. They even flagged down an ambulance in traffic to save precious minutes, but it was too late. What would have happened if a nurse had been able to call for help earlier in the day?
The state of education for black children is so bad that they’re dying from having asthma attacks at school. And that doesn’t even address the issue about children of color having increasing rates of having conditions like asthma.
Can we also mention why Corbett is gutting the Philadelphia public school system.. it’s to build a brand new prison complex in the burbs.. you know to house all those delinquent Philly school children who drop out because of lack of resources. The whole situation is like racism on steroids, not even joking.
Seriously, don’t even get me started on public school funding in Philly & the burbs because it is all kinds of fucked up & racist..
guys this is literally happening ALL OVER pa
i live in pittsburgh and i can confirm i have never, ever seen a school nurse in my school. it’s fucked up. we NEED to change this kids are dying holy fuck
hello yes living in pa i want to say i am thankful my school always has a few nurses at a time bc i did not realize this was an issue in the state wow
GA didn’t have any for any of the schools I attended (even the nice ones)
I saw this posted on tumblr and was gonna reblog it…but all the ppl who posted it were kind of mommy blogs…don’t think they’d like to be linked to a porn blog :o) Anyway…
So how does it work exactly??? Well for 52 weeks you save the same amount of money for which week you are on. For instance week one you save $1, week two you save $2, and so on. By the end of your 52 weeks you will have saved $1,378.00. It may not seem like a whole lot, but it is when you are not taking that much each week from your paycheck and just putting it in a jar and allowing it to add up.
Far cry from what I usually post…but I just thought this was a good idea.
well well well maybe i will be able to go to River Falls after all
Great way to save your money if you don’t know how to!
