Last week, Gov. Tom Wolf won a second term by defeating Republican challenger Scott Wagner.
A Wagner victory would have paved the way for more school choice-friendly policies such as education savings accounts — which would divert some existing public school dollars to help parents pay for private school tuition.
Wolf’s victory makes such proposals highly unlikely to come to fruition over the next four years.
In his first term, Wolf’s focus was on investing more money into public education, but on the campaign trail this year he was tight-lipped about his specific plans moving forward.
