Let's increase student achievement in schools.

Let's cut school funding. Let's  increase class sizes.
And let's do all of this - at the same time.

This makes no sense, yet it is exactly what Gov. Corbett proposed in his education  plan.

This school year, seventy percent of school districts in PA increased class sizes and 45 percent cut programs.

The Governor cut $860 million from  schools. And a new Terry Madonna Opinion Research poll says that 65 percent of Pennsylvanians oppose that.

What helps our students achieve results?
The respondents favored or strongly favored "more individualized student attention and tutoring" (89 percent), reduced class sizes (88 percent), and "programs to help make schools safer" (85 percent). They also favored:  alternative placement for disruptive/violent students (85 percent); "pre- and full-day kindergarten" (73 percent); and "programs to coordinate school, community and law enforcement programs" (79 percent).

Pennsylvania's public schools are among the best in the nation. Seven of ten public school students go on to college or higher education.

At a time when the world is expanding through globalization, shrinking educational opportunities, especially for urban youth, is the wrong direction.
