Excellent Education for All - Act Summary

Submitted by gail_holzer on


The Excellent Education for All Act (House Bill 1) is a transformative plan that ensures more Pennsylvania children have access to an excellent education. It contains four components:

  • Increasing the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) programs so students don’t miss out on great opportunities.
  • Reforming Pennsylvania’s charter schools while preserving and enhancing choice for families.
  • Offering an education opportunity account (EOA) to any school-age child in Pennsylvania. Students cannot enroll in public schools and receive an EOA.
  • Protecting learning pods from regulation that would prevent parent cooperation to enhance the education of their children.
