Know Your Rights: File A Complaint Today
The Pennsylvania state constitution says that students must be provided with a “thorough and efficient system of public education.” If children are being denied educational services, you have the right to file a complaint with the Pennsylvania Department of Education. The Secretary of Education has a responsibility to investigate complaints and correct any deficiencies (22 Pa. Code § 4.81). File a complaint today and tell the state to uphold its responsibility to all of Philadelphia's children.
This complaint will be emailed to Caroline Dumaresq, Acting Secretary of Education, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Copies of your complaint will be sent to you at the email address provided and to the Public Interest Law Center of Philadelphia which is tracking complaints.
