Education Voters Pennsylvania is dedicated to informing the public about the needs and importance of our public schools, ensuring our political leaders adopt and implement a pro public education agenda, and holding those leaders accountable if they fail to do so.
Increases in funding for public education should be allocated to Basic Education Funding this year, the charter reimbursement line that was eliminated in the FY11-12 budget should be restored, and the special education funding reform legislation should be passed. The legislature must identify adequate revenue to meet the needs of the Commonwealth and the Constitutional requirement to “provide a thorough and efficient education.”

The Gov's Budget Plan: What does it all mean?
Changing PA’s charter law: What is at stake in SB 1085? After 17 years, the PA legislature is considering making major changes to Pennsylvania’s charter school law. Improvements to the law are long overdue, but unfortunately, the legislation in the Senate (SB 1085) will not improve PA’s charter school law.
In Pennsylvania, it is time to start tackling issues related to how we provide a thorough and efficient public education system, as required by our Constitution and an excellent education for every child, as required by a powerful need to meet the future head on.
We are making public education policy a top priority as taxpayers and voters.
Education Voters envisions a nation in which every child has equitable opportunity for high quality education, and in which Americans in all communities demand that elected officials support that vision.
