PA's ESSA Plan gets federal approval

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) has given Pennsylvania a once-in-a-decade opportunity to reshape public education in the commonwealth.

Gov. Tom Wolf's administration has made good use of that opportunity, working closely with PSEA members and other stakeholders to develop a comprehensive, forward-thinking state ESSA plan. On Jan. 17, the U.S. Department of Education approved the plan, setting the stage for the state to fully implement it during the 2018-19 school year.

Supreme Court to decide case impacting PSEA and other unions

You may have heard that the Supreme Court is expected to rule this year in a case designed to further rig the rules against working people.

The case, Janus v. AFSCME, is an attempt to prevent unions like PSEA from charging fees for the services unions provide. The case holds serious implications for unions and is the latest push by well-heeled, anti-public employee forces to attack organized labor.
