Two prominent Pennsylvanians complain that the legislature dropped the ball again on charter reform.

Rob Gleason chaired the @PAGOP for 10 years prior to becoming Westmont Hilltop school board president. Democrat Eugene DePasquale was PA Auditor General for two terms. They get it.

They write:

As longtime public servants representing both major political parties and as concerned citizens who care about public education in the commonwealth, we are writing to express our great disappointment and frustration with the continued inaction by our state legislature despite broad-based, statewide, bipartisan support for charter school reform. The fact that more than 85% of locally elected school boards (434 of 500), in a state as diverse as ours, have passed formal resolutions calling for a substantive charter school law overhaul should send a clear message to policymakers — it is time for reform.
