This is a video from my new Internet newscast, the only grassroots progressive media show exclusively about Pennsylvania politics, Counterpoint PA.
In this video, I discuss (and explain a graph from) a new report detailing the devastating impacts that PA Governor Corbett's education cuts in the last few years have had on public schools in the state, including statistics on increasing class sizes, cutting electives, delaying textbook purchases, decreasing tutoring, and eliminating summer school, along with some of my own commentary.

Stay tuned throughout this week and next week for three more PA Headlines, The Breakdown which will feature an up-close look at a Democratic PA gubernatorial candidate's positions who I got to question personally, and of course, Counterpoint PA's homage to Keith Olbermann: the Worst Pennsylvanians of the Week.
