    FreedomWorks Backs School Choice in Pennsylvania

    04/03/2008

    FreedomWorks field coordinator Joe Hilliard joins advocates for school choice in the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. FreedomWorks is part of a coalition of citizen groups supporting the efforts of local leaders to start a charter school to compete with the government-run schools in the area. The Allentown Morning Call covered the press conference, organized by Chris Hoenscheid. More than 40 people attended the press conference in support of opening the Thomas Paine Charter School in Catasauqua, PA. The Catasauqua Area School Board voted the project down earlier last month. But Hoenscheid plans to resubmit an application for the 2009-10 school year.   Here is the article: http://www.mcall.com/news/local/all-b3-5charter.6337860apr02,0,4181634.story
