Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob Guzzardi has released the following statement about pending legislation that would severely harm charter schools in Pennsylvania.
Bills are pending before the Pennsylvania legislature that will halve funding for special education students in charter schools.
Dr. James Hanak of PA Leadership Charter School says many of the schools that serve the neediest children in the worst neighborhoods will close if they should pass.
This means those children will be forced to return to the dangerous snake pits from which they had escaped.
Both men are Republicans.
Charter schools cost 20 percent that of public ones and in most cases do a better job.
I ask that these bills be tabled permanently.
If I were governor I would not sign them.
Children must always come before public employees. Always.
