EFW - Monday, January 22, 2018

The 2018 race for PA Governor has begun. We need retirees, educators, and support professionals to help fight for our schools, our children and public education and help us re-elect Governor Tom Wolf.  

"Gov. Wolf gets it on standardized testing," said PSEA President Dolores McCracken in December 2017. "He's heard and understands what teachers, parents, and students have been saying for a long time — that the PSSA testing schedule should be pushed later into the academic year to allow for more quality instructional time. He also understands that less time spent on testing allows for more time spent teaching and learning." In addition to the recent changes to the PSSAs, Gov. Wolf signed a bill in June 2017 that provides career and technical education students with an alternative to the high-stakes Keystone Exams.
