Onorato Endorses School Choice Proposal

On Tuesday, we released a commentary noting that both candidates for governor in Pennsylvania – Tom Corbett (R) and Dan Onorato (D) – were advocates of school choice.

Yesterday, Onorato upped the ante, joining with Sen. Anthony Williams, whom he vanquished in the Democrat primary, to announce his support of scholarships for low-income students in failing districts. We previously highlighted school choice legislation introduced by Sen. Williams in June of this year.

It is quite a change of scenery to see two candidates who are battling over who supports school choice more.
