Help support the Notebook for 2012

By the Notebook on Dec 26, 2011 07:35 PM

2011 was a busy year at the Public School Notebook. 

We were there to cover all of the important stories in 2011. This year, we also grew our staff, we sponsored more events and activities than ever, and our reporters broke some of the biggest education stories of the year. And we did all of this through the support of readers, members, and contributors like you. Thank you.

We need your help now, as 2011 comes to a close, to ensure our high-quality reporting continues in 2012

Your gift now for this coming year will enable us to pursue our plans to:

You can make sure that the Notebook continues to bring you critical education news, information, and analysis throughout the coming year

Please donate now!

Thank you for a great year of reporting, information sharing, dialogue, and community building. We could not have had such a full and successful year without all of our readers, members, and supporters. Enjoy your holidays and see you in 2012!

I think that the more people contribute the bigger and better this site will become. You guys have really given us some great stories over the past year and I hope that 2012 is just as good.


    The Notebook was a great source of school information in 2011, if you are always losing, and they will do so again in 2012 if they can obtain the proper funding.

I too want to chime in on the need to support the Notebook. Over the last couple of years I have come to understand the importance of their work to the schoolchildren of Philadelphia and the school community of Philadelphia.

They provide the only truly independent voice for Philadelphians on the issues before us and their investigative reporting is done in a highly professional and non-biased manner. The work of the Notebook team has shed light on critical improprieties and successes within our district. The value of their work to our schoolchildren and every stakeholder is immeasurable.

A free and zealous press is essential to a well functioning democracy. It is an element of the "democratic imperative for our schools." Without a strong press and the freedom to make our voices heard, there can be no greatness in our schools.

thanks to the school district of philadelphia for laying off 47 nurses on xmas eve. of course not one person at 440 will answer the phone or call anyone back. i spent my entire vacation trying to get a hold of administrators at the region for help converting my health benefits.

another big thanks to the school district for taking a half day on friday for the holiday weekend after laying me off. maybe next time you should take us off of the email list serve. I tried getting in touch with someone at 440 on friday without success...Much appreciated.

Interesting, since Dr. Nunery stated in an email to SD employees that the phones had to be staffed until 6pm.
