Looks like school choice advocates and opponents should tune in on Tuesday, when Gov. Tom Corbett reportedly will unveil his fall education initiatives at a York charter school.
The York Dispatch posted this afternoon that the governor will visit Lincoln Elementary Charter School on Tuesday morning to make the announcement. It's the same charter school where he announced his education plan during the gubernatorial campaign.
Corbett declined to elaborate on what education policies he'll be pushing for this fall when asked about it on Wednesday, though he and his staff have regularly talked about comprehensive school reform package that encompasses private-school vouchers, new rules for charter school, and an expansion of the state's tax credit program for businesses that contribute to private-school scholarship programs.
One attempt at a school voucher program slowed earlier this year, after the administration expressed some hesitancy toward that draft proposal. Corbett, in an interview today with a central Pennsylvania CBS affiliate, said he'd like to see a voucher program targeted toward families at 130 percent of the federal poverty level, reports the Allentown Morning Call.
He also noted that he's also looking for tougher evaluation standards for public school teachers, according to the paper.
