Education

 

Quality educational opportunities for children and workers

 

Pennsylvania's economic viability and long-term prosperity depends upon a well-educated workforce. Accordingly, the PA Chamber supports a public education system that establishes clear accountability and provides every child with the opportunity to receive a quality education. The PA Chamber supports school choice initiatives, including a voucher system and charter schools. Lifelong learning can be vital for workers in a consistently evolving economy, and the PA Chamber supports workforce development programs that have clear performance criteria and are targeted to the employment needs of the business community.
