Republicans refuse to take action on bills that would make Pennsylvania schools healthier, safer, and more inclusive.
Five things to watch for when the governor's budget plan for the 2022-23 fiscal year becomes public Tuesday.
Gov. Wolf said the bill, which would have required links or titles for every textbook and course summaries to be posted on district websites, "politicizes what is being taught in our schools.”
The law would allow parents and guardians to overrule any mask mandate imposed by the state Department of Health, a local health department, or a school board.
With school back in session, Gov. Wolf's mask mandate prompted protests and non-compliance throughout the state.
The response came one day after Gov. Wolf asked GOP leaders to summon lawmakers to Harrisburg to pass legislation requiring schools and child care facilities to require masks in classrooms.
The pandemic has brought many financial challenges to all of Pennsylvania’s 501 school districts.
