THE WAR ON HOMEOWNERS CONTINUES! EAST PENN TO REFINANCE DEBT!

East Penn/Emmaus HS Superintendent Schilder

 

The issue of School Real Estate Property Tax Relief has been a hot issue for years and has been getting hotter! Many citizens have been organizing with taxpayer groups across the Commonwealth to pressure State politicians to do something meaningful. Act 76 is one issue that has reached the boiling point. Act 76 would have increased the State Income Tax slightly and the Sales Tax would have seen slight increase in exchange for the ELIMINATION OF SCHOOL PROPERTY TAXES!

Groups opposed to this are the Teacher’s Unions, School Administrators, and the Chamber of Commerce.

If Act 76 had passed, schools could still tax property to pay off debt. That is why school

Share

 

Editor’s Note: This article ran in the Commentator in 2012. It has been updated.

The issue of inappropriate books in school reading programs has come up all across the country. In the Easton School District the book Nickeled and Dimed caused the taxpaying public to object. In East Penn, two more books that were described as porn became a topic of public concern. The story on East Penn is presented here as a companion to the Virginia school book porn issue.

After discovering what she considers over-the-top, sexually explicit material in her children’s high school reading assignments, a Northern Virginia mother is lobbying for greater transparency inside the classroom.

“This happened four years ago, when I first became aware of the books that were being taught in schools,” Laura Murphy, a mother of four in Fairfax, Va., told The Daily Signal. “As I read it, I was disturbed by some of the content.”

The content, Murphy said, was brought to her attention by her son, who at the

Is Pa. budget Groundhog Day ahead?

Share

Matthew Brouillette, Guest Writer /February 1, 2016/ at the York Daily Record

Will Wolf show what lessons he’s learned from the painful budget process? Or will it be “déjà vu all over again”?

Is Gov. Tom Wolf stuck in a “Groundhog Day” deja vu loop?(Photo: File)

When Bill Murray’s world-weary weatherman character arrives in Punxsutawney in the classic movie “Groundhog Day,” little does he know the time loop that lies ahead. After endlessly reliving the same day, he asks, “What would you do if you were stuck in one place and every day was exactly the same, and nothing that you did mattered?”

That’s a challenging question, and one Gov. Tom Wolf might be asking himself before his second budget address

New School Director questions PA Youth Survey

Share

 

Folks:

I am a newly elected conservative School Board Director in Boyertown.

Here in Boyertown, we had “raised a lot of dust” at a recent board meeting regarding the PA Youth Survey. The Reading Eagle also had an article from the discussion we had on the PA Youth Survey or “PAYS”.

One order of business that our community would like to see changed is our use of the PA Youth Survey. This survey gathers information that many see as totally impertinent to educating our children.

Some sample questions from the Pa Youth Survey are:

“how often do you attend religious services or activities?”,

“People in my family often insult or
