PA Senate Democratic Caucus Sends Letter to Secretary Dumaresq

The entire Pennsylvania Democratic Caucus sent a letter to the Acting Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) shortly after a lawsuit alleging that the PDE has violated its legal obligation to investigate allegations of massive curriculum deficiencies in Philadelphia public schools was filed.

The Democratic Caucus asked Secretary Dumaresq what the PDE did to follow up on the more than 800 complaints gathered last year against Philadelphia schools. The caucus also urged immediate action due to the School District of Philadelphia funding crisis.
