Our Schools Are Not For Sale

Our Schools Are Not For Sale is the story of Philadelphia's teachers, parents and students struggling to ensure quality education in public schools in the face of massive budget cuts, school staff layoffs and closures. Watch how local communities are responding to a year of unprecedented attacks, including the closing of 24 schools, layoffs of hundreds of teachers and counselors, and the elimination of school libraries, art, music, and sports programs. The dangers of the situation in Philadelphia's schools has become particularly clear after the death of a 12 year-old student who suffered from asthma and was not able to receive attention because school nurses were laid off.
