In the summer of 2014, the Media Mobilizing Project began reaching out to parents across Philadelphia in search of powerful untold stories. We hoped to get a sense of how families have been affected by the education budget cuts in recent years, and why so many continue to support our public neighborhood schools that are so often negatively portrayed. We have been inspired by the enthusiasm of these passionate parents as they share their concerns, praises, and dreams for our city’s schools and our young people.
