Pennsylvanians want their children to have a great education; after all that’s the key to getting a great job and having a great future.
But our state government takes our property taxes and, in the case of many of our urban areas, forces us to send our children to schools it knows are failing. We spend over $300,000 per high school graduate in many of our school districts, and half of the graduates in some of these districts are not proficient in algebra, or cannot read at a 9th grade level. Less than 30% of Governor Wolf’s increases in education funding have gone toward teaching our children.
Paul Mango will ensure every one of our children has the choice and the means to obtain a good education. Pennsylvania families must be empowered to make choices for their children’s success.
