STATEWIDE SURVEY SHOWS CONNECTIONS BETWEEN EDUCATION, ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND NEED FOR CHANGE IN STATE SUPPORT FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Public Opinion Describes Disconnect Between Current Policies and Pennsylvania’s Needs

HARRISBURG (April 22, 2014) – At a time when the state’s economy is struggling to pick up steam, Pennsylvanians are making strong connections between public education, state funding and economic development according to a new statewide public opinion poll released today.

“While our state’s year-over-year job growth sits among the weakest states and the state’s contribution to public education funding is below the national average, Pennsylvanians are making connections that state officials have so far missed,” said Jim Buckheit, executive director of the Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators (PASA). “Strong public schools are critical to a strong economy and the investments our state makes should strengthen every community.”

1. What is Fifth Disease? - Fifth Disease (also known as Erythema infectiosum) is a mild rash illness that occurs most commonly in children. The ill child typically has a "slapped-cheek" rash on the face and a lacy red rash on the trunk and limbs. Occasionally, the rash may itch. An ill child may have a low-grade fever, malaise, or a "cold" a few days before the rash breaks out. The child is usually not very ill, and the rash resolves in 7 to 10 days.
