Philly Students, Teachers & Parents Head To Harriburg for Rally

Posted: Updated:

Fox 29 cameras captured buses loaded with students, teachers and parents as they departed from university City this morning.

They were on their way to Harrisburg to attend a rally that will be held outside of the state capitol at 2 p.m.

The goal of this rally is to ask for more funding for the cash-strapped Philadelphia School District. Attendees want the state to put an additional $120 million next year and approve a tax increase on cigarettes to help close the existing $304 million budget gap.

Fox 29's Claudia Gomez will have a  full report on this rally on Harrisburg on the Fox 29 news at 5 & 6.
