At rally in East Falls, more calls for increased school funding

This article was originally published in The Notebook. In August 2020, The Notebook became Chalkbeat Philadelphia. At Thomas Mifflin Elementary School in East Falls on Thursday, the rain clouds held off long enough for rallygoers to support the District’s request to the city and state for a total of $180 million in increased funding for Philadelphia’s schools. The rally was organized by the Friends of Mifflin School, a school-focused community group, one of many such groups to have formed in recent years.
