Kevin Deely to Hold Press Conference on State Education Budget Claims and New School Year’s Classroom Realities

 ,   Add to calendar
 704 W Emaus Ave Allentown PA 18103  See map

At 4 p.m. Thursday, 10th grade English teacher and candidate for the state House of Representatives, Kevin Deely, will stand with his fellow teachers and parents to address those impacts. At the press conference, Deely will also provide information addressing the difference between elected officials’ claims and the reality in the classroom.

Hundreds of hard-working teachers and staff in Easton and Reading schools have already been furloughed. Allentown, Southern Lehigh, Salisbury and Saucon Valley did not replace some retired teachers and have reduced support positions. Class-sizes have jumped and vital services for our children are disappearing.

Deely will explain why.

WHEN: 4 p.m. Thursday, September 20

WHERE: Public Sidewalk, Outside of South Mountain Middle School, Emmaus Ave. and Church St., Allentown

Don't worry about the sidewalk being jammed John, I drove past, I think there were maybe 10 or 15 people there. I am going to go out on a limb and say all of them were teacher's union people, and I would be shocked if there were 2 people from the district. Also Kevin a misprint address would be like 420 W. Emmaus Ave not a completely different address, that is what you call either A) a lazy post and you just did the first allentown school district address you found and/or B) not knowing where prominent community locations are in the district Not sure which is worse, but neither is a good sign. Good thing a random person on Upper Saucon Patch was able to point that out for you.

Mr.Deely.....I am still waiting for you to respond to my email concerning a local school district and what you would do about the situation if given the chance. If this is how you respond to constituents I am sticking with Rep. Justin Simmons...he responded to us immediately!

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed that comment coming from you.

You gotta wonder how many email addresses Simmons had to construct in order to put up the comments.

None. These comments come from people who are not DemoIdiots.
