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.

Tell your state lawmaker to pass the House Democrats' charter school reform package today!

As a strong supporter of a quality education for all children, I encourage you to pass the House Democrats' charter school reform package (H.B.s 1198, 1199, 1200, 1201, 1202, 1203, 1204 and 1205) that would improve efficiencies and accountability in charter schools and ensure state tax dollars are protected for our students. Providing high-quality education to all Pennsylvania students should be the ultimate goal of our educational system, and charter reform is key to that success.
