 Inside the outbreak: Teaching & feeding
Families and educators search for creative solutions during the pandemic

Brielle Landman, a 10th grader at Champion Christian School in Champion, Pa., said her ADHD makes it difficult to keep to a schedule on her own.

“I struggle a bit more being out of the classroom,” she said about the prospect of long-term online assignments. But on the “bright side,” she said she’s finding more time to practice piano, read books, and spend time with her parents.

Champion Executive Director D. Merle Skinner said faculty and technology staff are available to students “personally, online, and on-site.”

DeVos

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos visited Harrisburg Catholic Elementary School in Harrisburg, PA on September 19 for a roundtable discussion moderated by Sean McAleer of the Pennsylvania CAPE. The secretary accepted the invitation to visit from Representative Mike Turzai, Speaker of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. Secretary DeVos discussed her proposed Education Freedom Scholarships legislation that has been introduced in Congress, while Speaker Turzai described his legislation that would allow public school students in the Harrisburg School District, which has been placed into state receivership, to attend private schools through a scholarship.

 

Participating in the roundtable were two children who have benefited from Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC) and their mother, as well as key legislators, Catholic school officials, and Pennsylvania State CAPE leaders Merle Skinner, Marie Conti, Arielle Franklin-Morris, and David Hegedus.

 

Earlier in the year, Pennsylvania’s Governor Tom Wolf vetoed a dramatic expansion of the EITC, however a more modest increase in the tax credits was ultimately approved as a part of the budget process.
