How we determine your champions of public schools

Champions of public schools are determined by teachers, nurses, and support professionals throughout Pennsylvania who volunteer their time to meet candidates, study their positions and discuss those who are best for students and educators.

The process to become a champion of public schools is thorough, fair, and based purely on a candidate’s positions. Political affiliation is not considered.

Candidates for local offices and the state legislature are invited to fill out a questionnaire and attend an interview hosted by local educators in their regions. These educators discuss the candidates, and their positions on key issues, before voting on a recommendation.
