The governor and legislature have been deadlocked for months over the state budget. The schools will run out of money in a few weeks or months.
Mark Miller, president of the Pennsylvania School Boards Association and board member of the Network for Public Education, sent the following message:
“PA’s budget crisis has reached a new low. PSBA surveyed 500 school districts. 192 responded and 52 of those (more than 25%) provided dates ranging from March 1st to May 26th as the date they would need to suspend operations.”
How can it be possible that the leaders of the state would allow schools to close their doors in the middle of the semester?
