PCPCS Expresses Disappointment on Failure of Senate to Pass Charter School Law
July 02, 2012
West Chester, PA – The Pennsylvania Coalition of Public Charter Schools expresses profound disappointment in the failure of the Senate to act on Senate Bill 1115 which passed the House yesterday with comprehensive charter reform amendments.
The encouraging action by the House represented an imperfect, but long overdue update of the charter school law that would have remedied many of the inequities that have existed since the original charter law was enacted in 1997. The inaction by the Senate maintains the status quo which continues to impede the development of high quality charter schools and limit educational choices for parents. It is our sincere hope that we can work with the House and Senate to resolve their differences so that intelligent and comprehensive charter reform legislation can be passed in the fall. Our children deserve it.
