Here in SW PA, I can tell you some serious horror stories about our public school, going as far back as the 70's. Stories of favoritism, intimidation, out and out thievery and harassment.

I am compelled to send my children out of state to a private school in order to protect them.

The problem in my school district is my kids are telling me that Teachers dont feel like teaching so they make the class a study hall.

It's tragic for the students not to receive a proper education. From Washington to Harrisburg the Dept. Of Ed. Is laden with to much administration, needless functionaries performing nothing to contribute to educating our youth. Non carborundum illegitimae.

There are some major reforms that we need, like merit pay for good teachers, the ability to fire bad teachers, more school choice, putting an end to teacher strikes, etc.. Please join the fight and get involved today!

I am curious about the Freedom of Choice and reform changes going through the General Assembly, does this bill include any parts for parents to be able to get tax credit for educational materials we have to purchase or towards testing that must be submitted to the school district.

Thanks for posting, Dave. The war room makes it very easy to connect with your elected officials in Harrisburg on school choice.
