Nurses hold vigil for Laporshia Massey :: News :: Philadelphia City Paper
"... a sixth-grader who died after falling sick at a Philadelphia public school where no nurse was on duty. Laporshia's father and others ask if budget cuts that have sharply reduced staff might have played a role."

"Gov. Tom Corbett and the Republican-controlled state legislature have imposed massive cuts on public education statewide, propelling the long-underfunded School District of Philadelphia into a deep crisis. The district has nearly 3,000 fewer staff members than it did in June."
