In a recent press release and video , Gov . Wolf publicly acknowledged the work of PSBA and public school leaders to bring about needed charter school reform . In May school leaders from across the state participated in PSBA ’ s Charter Reform Virtual Rally , where the association reported that more than 400 school boards have adopted a resolution calling for the General Assembly to enact meaningful reforms to the 24-year-old charter school law . The rally was supported by the recent release of the association ’ s Charter School Task Force Report , the result of a multiyear effort bringing together school leaders to examine the state ’ s current charter school law and make recommendations for reform .
