(Nov 4) PA Governor-Elect Tom Wolf Hails Education a Priority

“We need to reestablish education as a priority in Pennsylvania. This nation was founded on the idea of a broad based citizenship and, very early on in the history of the republic, our ancestors realized that education was the key to a strong citizenship, to a strong democracy, to a strong economy, to strong families, and we needed to invest in that. We need to make sure that we resurrect that idea here in Pennsylvania and make sure that education is at the top of the list, not the bottom. And I understand there are different ideas of how we deliver on the promise of a good education, but we need to invest in it. We have to work together to make sure we deliver on that promise and we’ve got to make it a priority. We’ve also got to make sure that we fund our education system fairly and we’ve got to make sure we raise the money that we use to fund education, that we raise it fairly, that we’re not burdening, say, property taxpayers. We’ve got to do a better job.” – from Pennsylvania Governor-Elect Tom Wolf’s victory speech, November 4, 2014
