Tell Us Your Story

Nearly 250,000 Pennsylvania students are trapped in failing schools – many of which have only a small percentage of students performing at grade level in reading or math. The Pennsylvania Award for Student Success (PASS) program would offer scholarships to support new services and learning opportunities for students in the state’s lowest-performing schools. Gov. Josh Shapiro campaigned on school scholarships and emphasized that all children deserve a chance at a good education – Senate Republicans agree.

The PASS program was part of this year’s state budget proposal until Gov. Shapiro announced he would veto his own priority. Senate Republicans want to ensure kids trapped in failing schools have a chance – you help take action by sharing your story and/or signing our petition.
