Group advocates for public policies to help great schools thrive in Pennsylvania
CHADDS FORD, PA –Representative Tom Killion, the Republican candidate for Pennsylvania Senate in the 9th Senate District, has earned the endorsement of Excellent Schools PA, a bipartisan organization that advocates for public policy conditions that will help great schools to thrive in Pennsylvania.
“Our kids deserve access to every educational resource available to ensure success,” said Killion. “I have consistently supported increased funding for education and the implementation of a fair funding formula for local districts so that schools in Delaware and Chester County are properly funded by the state. I greatly appreciate the backing of Excellent Schools PA and thank them for their support.”
A supporter of public schools, Killion has fought for increased K-12 education funding in Harrisburg. Killion supports a fair Shale tax on drillers to fund public education. He also backs a plan that protects taxpayers and gives our students the resources they need for success. For far too long, Harrisburg has taken tax dollars from our area to fund schools across the state. Tom will make sure our tax dollars stay in our community for our kids.
Excellent Schools PA believes that every child in every neighborhood should have access to a great school and graduate from high school prepared for college or a career. The organizations feels that every child, regardless of race, income level, or the zip code where they live, deserves access to a high quality education.
