Why it’s important to support Gov. Wolf’s Charter school reforms

Tuesday, February 11, 2020 by KAREN BECK POOLEY BASD SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER in Opinion

The reason I sought a school board position is because, in my opinion, public schools are one of the most (if not the most) important thing we as a community collectively do.

Over 90 percent of us learn to read and write, tackle math and science, find our passion and purpose, in public schools. They’re a springboard to opportunities of all kind. They anchor our neighborhoods. They train our future local leaders.
