How Pennsylvania charter schools are funded

Share

By at Pennsylvania Watchdog

Charter school funding is one of the most important and misunderstood elements of the contentious education debate in Pennsylvania. Many school districts across the state, from Erie to Philadelphia, are struggling to solve structural budget deficits tied to rising pension costs and charter payments.

Thinkstock

THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE: Charter school funding, while clearly outlined by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, is interpreted differently by those who are for and against school choice.

While some place the blame on charter schools and advance a misleading narrative about how the schools are funded, the truth is often lost in the rhetoric. Continue reading…

U.S. Senator Toomey

From the Lehigh Valley 9/12 Project Tea Party Second Amendment Committee

Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) is running a pro-gun control ad in hopes of attracting Democrat voters in the buildup to Pennsylvania’s April 26 Primary, according to breitbart.com report.

 

“According to the Associated Press, the ad is narrated by gun control proponent Nancy Grogran, a board member of CeasefirePA (known to 2A readers as a subversive organization that, along with the likes of Barack Hussein Obama, is trying to undermine our American rights). The ad is only running in certain areas of the state and appears focused on creating space between Toomey and pro-gun GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump,” notes the breitbart.com update.

TAX FIGHT: Colorado Department of Revenue officials spent nearly $500,000 fighting for a tax on out-of-state retailers, but will likely have to give the money back.

 

Colorado officials spent $453,000 so far in tax dollars fighting for information on how to tax residents’ purchases from out-of-state retailers, but now state constitutional requirements will likely force the Department of Revenue to refund any money it collects.

DOR and the Direct Marketing Association have been in a six-year legal battle over whether out-of-state retailers, like Amazon.com, have to report untaxed purchases so the state can go after residents for

The real one percent strikes again

Share

 

By Cliff Kincaid at Renew America, Provo, Utah

Cliff Kincaid is a veteran journalist and media critic.

 

The real one percent, as opposed to the fake one percent touted by Bernie Sanders (I-VT), raised its ugly head in Georgia on Monday, when “conservative” Republican Governor Nathan Deal collapsed under pressure. He vetoed a bill respecting the freedom and rights of Christians and other religious believers who oppose the gay-rights agenda. Big media, Hollywood, and other big businesses threatened to pull their operations out of the state if Deal signed the common-sense piece of legislation that reaffirmed First Amendment rights of freedom-of-religion expression.

The legislation would have ensured that pastors could not be forced to perform homosexual marriages.

U. S. Senator Casey

From the Lehigh Valley 9/12 Project Tea Party Second Amendment Committee

 

Two-faced U.S. Sen. Robert P. Casey Jr. – who decided that he’s the authority on Constitutional rights – recently met with a gang of radicals in Philadelphia to solicit their ideas on stripping us of our Second Amendment rights.

 

“This is a grave matter for the country and, candidly, it’s an issue that we haven’t tackled in a manner that’s commensurate with the threat that’s posed,” the turncoat Democrat told representatives of Mothers in Charge, Philadelphia CeaseFire, CeaseFire PA, and others at a roundtable at Temple University’s Lewis Katz School of Medicine, according to a philly.com article.

This article is presented from the Pennsylvania Family Council!

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf

DEFEND YOUR PERSONAL PRIVACY AND RIGHTS OF CONSCIENCE

Your Voice is Needed NOW! Please take action today.

Today Governor Tom Wolf is bypassing the people and the legislature, and issuing an executive order to add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity or expression” to the 79,000 direct employees of the Commonwealth and the tens of thousands of contracts with the state. Details on the scope of his order are still being analyzed.

But the battle continues.

Tom Wolf wants even more. He said today that his order is “a first step.” He’s pushing for broad, sweeping legislation (HB 1510 and SB 974) that would put personal privacy and safety

Weekly Update-From The Commonwealth Foundation

Share

Monday, April 11, 2016

Dear CF Friend,

Will Gov. Wolf put his money–or in this case his pen—where his mouth is?

Gov. Wolf has been going on a campaign-like “Government that Works” tour arguing for greater transparency and accountability in state government.

Last week, the Legislature gave him a chance to back up his talk with action. They sent Wolf legislation that would let regular Pennsylvanians know the cost of government contracts before they’re finalized. SB 644, sponsored by Sen. Mike Folmer, would bring to light billions in government contract costs that are now kept secret until the dotted lines are signed.

Remember, these are billions that Wolf is currently negotiating behind closed doors with government union leaders. Several of these unions Continue reading…
