In a crucial victory for both students and teachers, the Protecting Excellent Teachers Act passed the Senate yesterday with a vote of 26 to 22.

HB 805, championed by Rep. Stephen Bloom, provides that public school teachers are retained based on effectiveness in the classroom—not merely seniority—in the unfortunate event of furloughs. A seniority-based system punishes young, effective teachers who excel in the classroom but have not racked up sufficient service time. This is unfair. HB 805 ensures our best teachers remain in the classroom, helping every child reach their maximum potential.

The legislation now moves to Gov. Wolf, whose options are clear: Side with the teachers’ unions which oppose the bill or side with students and excellent teachers—both of whom stand to gain tremendously from the governor’s signature.

Gov. Wolf’s spokesman has promised a veto, but his logic makes no sense. Please send a quick message to Gov. Wolf about HB 805 today!

Thanks,

James
