A recent report by the Keystone Research Center found that Pennsylvania’s economy will continue to prosper if state lawmakers continue to enact smart, worker-friendly policies.
The Wolf administration released a 20-page educator workforce strategy, outlining its plans to recruit and retain educators while building a more diverse workforce by 2025.
“I think teachers are tired of not being heard or consulted,” said Whitney Sandoval, a Kansas-based certified orientation and mobility specialist who teaches children with visual impairments.
The report says an additional $116.5 billion is needed "for personal protective equipment, health staffing, cleaning support and resources to address students' needs."
"Unfortunately, an increasing number of Pennsylvania educators and parents are concerned that reopening schools for in-person instruction poses significant health risks."
