Pa. Education Reform: Vouchers And Vitriol

PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) -- Gov. Tom Corbett announced his education reform package Tuesday morning, pleasing small business representatives, but angering many teachers' unions and their members.

Both sides weigh in with NewsRadio 1020 KDKA's Mike Pintek.

Pintek hosts Butch Santicola, spokesman for the Pennsylvania State Education Association (PSEA), the largest teachers union in the state, along with Kevin Shivers, state director of the National Federation of Independent Business.

Santicola outlines why his union opposes the Governor's plan, while Shivers argues that the reform package's emphasis on school competition will benefit the children of Pennsylvania.

Listen to Mike Pintek every weekday from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. on NewsRadio 1020 KDKA!
