PA Education Issues in 2017. Speaker: Sharon Kletzien, PhD, Professor Emerita, West Chester University and LWVPA Education Issues Specialist

In the summer of 2017, Pennsylvania will submit its state plan to the US Dept. Of Education for The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which replaces the No Child Left Behind Act. While ESSA was developed and passed with strong, bipartisan agreement in PA, the US Department of Education will be under new leadership.

Also, Pennsylvania is on pace for a $600 million budget shortfall, so the budget for Education may be especially contentious.

Dr. Kletzien will provide an overview of these and other important issues affecting Education in Pennsylvania.

Public is welcome to attend.
