June 17, 2011

DuBOIS – School choice is currently a hot topic in the Pennsylvania State Legislature, according to Amy Hill, communications director for the Pennsylvania Catholic Conference.
Hill was the main speaker at a news conference held Friday afternoon at DuBois Area Catholic School regarding Senate Bill 1.
"Senate Bill 1 is a good sort of stepping-off place when we're talking about school choice in Pennsylvania right now," Hill said. "The bill aims to increase the very successful Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program, which has been in existence for about 10 years now."
