Pa. schools join Philly in call for more state money
June 04, 2013
Lawrence Jones, president of the Pennsylvania Coalition of Public Charter Schools, said the city’s charters will be even worse off if the state doesn’t come through with more money.
“If the budget gap’s not filled, we could be looking at a 12 percent cut,” Jones said. “There are several small, independent charters that may not be able to weather that storm and could actually close.”
