Education inequity and the burden placed by property taxes as a result of that inequity. Pennsylvania has one of the most unequal funding systems in the entire country. This hurts poorer school districts (like Allentown) and fast growing ones (like Parkland).

I believe we need to enact the Basic Education Funding Commission report as soon as possible. This will close much of the equity gap and ensure that all students have the educational opportunities they need to succeed.
I would enact a variety of changes, including enabling early voting, pre-canvassing of ballots, allowing family members to drop off ballots at drop boxes, same-day registration, and pre-registration for young adults.
I would seek to fully enact the Basic Education Funding Commission report. I would also go further and enact charter school reform laws that ensure charter schools are held to the same accountability, financing and transparency standards as our public schools.
I would codify the right to an abortion for women in Pennsylvania. I believe abortion should be safe and legal, and I believe that government does not have a right in telling a woman what she can do with her body and her medical decisions.
