POTUS Knocks PA Gov Wolf Veto of School Choice in SOTU

Leah Millis/Pool via AP

One of President Trump’s key campaign promises was championing school choice. He highlighted this in his third State of the Union address Tuesday evening.

One of the president’s guests was Philadelphia, 4th-grade student Janiyah Davis and her mom Stephanie; Janiyah has been continually assigned to poor-performing schools and has been on the waiting list for a tax-credit scholarship.

President Trump took a swipe at Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, who vetoed legislation that would have expanded the Educational Improvement Tax Credit. This tax credit was created for students like Janiyah, so that all students have access to quality education, regardless of their zip code.

President Trump announced that Janiyah would receive a scholarship to the school of her choice, and pressed Congress to pass the Education Freedom Scholarships and Opportunities Act, which would expand school choice and decrease the number of students dependent upon failing government schools.
