Immunity

  1. Recent PA Supreme Court decisions could expose public schools to liability based on potential COVID exposure in schools. Provide immunity for schools! #Advocate4PublicEd
  2. Public education is an essential government function. School leaders shouldn’t have to worry about lawsuits claiming COVID exposure in schools when following all state, CDC, and local guidance. Provide immunity for schools! #Advocate4PublicEd
  3. Protect public schools from being forced to spend taxpayer dollars defending lawsuits related to alleged COVID exposure in schools. #Advocate4PublicEd

Others

  1. As public schools were forced to switch to virtual instruction, it highlighted the fact that many areas of the Commonwealth still lack access to high-speed internet service. It’s time to expand broadband access to all Pennsylvanians. #Advocate4PublicEd
  2. Reinstating a mandate waiver program would allow schools flexibility and cost savings while not requiring any additional state funding. #Advocate4PublicEd
  3. Public schools have adapted to providing high quality instruction to their students as the pandemic forces them to deal with a variety of challenges. #SuccessStartsHere #Advocate4PublicEd
