Breaking News: PA Legislature Does Something Right

Today the NCSL Thicket blog ran an entry, "Top Ten for Back to School Progam," by Jan Goehring. She starts out saying:

Each summer, NCSL's Trust for Representative Democracy collects information about how many legislators participated in the America's Legislators Back to School Program the previous school year. The program encourages legislators to visit classrooms and bring civics to life for students all across the country. Each year an average of 1,200 state lawmakers are involved.

Pennsylvania ranked third in the nation for the percentage of legislators participating, with an 80% rate. The Pennsylvania State House had a 100% participation rate.
