Since January, FreedomWorks has been fighting for school choice in Pennsylvania, but the next few weeks are the most important yet. The outcome of this fall's legislative session will determine whether Pennsylvania schools serve students and parents or continue catering to unions and bureaucrats.
Governor Tom Corbett has proposed an aggressive plan to put parents back in charge of education that FreedomWorks and our allies around the state are proud to support. The governor's four-point plan calls for expanding the earned income tax credit, setting up "opportunity scholarships" for students trapped in failing schools, creating a commission to approve charter schools and implementing a new teacher evaluation system.
In addition, by lobbying individual legislators to support his plan, Governor Corbett is demonstrating the kind of leadership on this issue that will make school choice a reality in Pennsylvania.
Please Take Action and help FreedomWorks stand with the governor by contacting your representatives and asking them to back his four-point plan.
We're already off to a strong start. Delegations of activists, led by FreedomWorks and our coalition partners, have been conducting grassroots lobbying visits in Harrisburg ever since legislators reconvened there in September. If you or your group would like to join these efforts, please email email@example.com.
FreedomWorks also hosted a school choice panel in Lebanon this week where attendees heard from state leaders including Rep. Jim Christiana, a key advocate for educational freedom in the House of Delegates.
And please plan to join us in Harrisburg on November 15th for a rally to remind Pennsylvania legislators that school choice remains as important to voters today as it was the day they elected Tom Corbett. More details on that event to follow.
Together, we've been fighting all year to achieve school choice in Pennsylvania, and we need your help now more than ever. I hope you'll join us, our coalition partners and Governor Corbett to finally achieve school choice this fall.
We owe it to Pennsylvania's students and parents to finish this fight.
