Treat all public schools equally - charter school reform is key

Charter schools and traditional public schools both receive tax dollars and are considered public schools under Pennsylvania law. To ensure quality educational opportunities for all children, they should be treated equally under law. But they’re not.

For too many years, charter schools have been free to operate under rules less stringent than those required of traditional public schools. It’s led to the mismanagement of charters and the bungling of millions of taxpayer dollars by these publicly funded schools.  

House Democrats have introduced a package of bills designed to treat all Pennsylvania public schools – both traditional and charter – and their students equally and fairly under law.
