Education Resolution on Cyber Charter Schools

At the AAUW-PA 86th Annual Business Meeting held April 11, 2015, the York Branch proposed a resolution as follows:

Whereas, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania approved cyber charter schools in 1997, and their low performance scores rank 48.7% on the State’s 100 points scale compared to public schools’ scores of 78.8%;

And whereas, the funding for cyber charter schools far exceeds instructional costs; therefore, be it

Resolved that AAUW-PA encourage its branches to educate their members and the public about the academic, social, and economic impact evolving from the continuance and increase of cyber charter schools as this vitally affects the future level of education for present and future generations of students in Pennsylvania.

The resolution passed unanimously.
