Supporting Public Education
As the father of two public school teachers, Barletta knows the importance of quality education for our children. As a member of the U.S. House Committee on Education and Labor, he was credited with saving the federal funding for after school programs, which had been slated for elimination. Pennsylvania students have been negatively affected by Gov. Wolf’s one size fit all decisions this past year shutting down schools. As governor he will continue to be a champion for high quality public schools, for school choice, and for the greater involvement of parents and teachers in decisions affecting their children. Barletta will also continue to pursue partnerships with schools and private businesses to create opportunities so that graduates are not forced to leave home to find employment.
