Gov. Wolf's Charter School Accountability Plan Saves Nearly $280 Million

Governor Tom Wolf's commonsense plan to improve the educational quality of charter schools and control rising costs will save nearly $280 million a year, the governor told the Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators today. The governor has a three-part plan to fix Pennsylvania's charter school law which is regarded as one of the worst in the nation.

"Every student deserves a great education, whether in a traditional public school or a charter school, but the state's flawed and outdated charter school law is failing children, parents, and taxpayers," said Governor Wolf. "Pennsylvania has a history of school choice, which I support, but there is widespread agreement that we must change the law to prioritize quality and align funding to actual costs."

"My plan will hold charter schools accountable so parents and students have a high-quality option that prepares students for success and protects taxpayers."
