The Champion of Public Education award is presented by the Pennsylvania School Boards Association (PSBA) to state lawmakers in recognition of outstanding support of traditional public schools during a two-year legislative session.
Support for traditional public schools is measured in the following ways:
- The legislator’s voting record. PSBA informs lawmakers in advance which votes will be considered as PSBA Key Votes and asks lawmakers.
- The bills introduced by the legislator.
- The legislator’s attendance at and involvement with their local public schools.
- The legislator’s willingness to work with PSBA.
