Corbett & education

As a result of Gov. Tom Corbett's recent commitment to increase education spending, Pennsylvania students will reap the benefits.

For instance, he decided to increase funding for early childhood development by $5 million. Programs such as Pre-K Counts will expand the government's ability to enroll more students with disabilities and developmental delays. This in turn will give these prekindergarten students the ability to improve their skills and benefit from certified teachers, high-quality curriculum and learning assessments.

With these additional funds, children will have smaller classrooms and more individualized attention, since there will be enough money to pay for several high-quality teachers and curriculum.

Corbett's increase in education funding will improve the educational development of Pennsylvania students for years to come.
