Teachers, Students, Staff March on City Hall

Striking teachers and staff at the Community College of Philadelphia were joined by students during a march to City Hall in hopes of getting council members to intervene in the ongoing contract dispute. The teacher's union said the strike, which has suspended classes for 10 days, is threatening to interrupt the upcoming summer session. Approximately 200 people walked from the Spring Garden campus to City Hall. Chanting participants crowded into council chambers, waving signs demanding funding for the school.
