Reverse recent funding cuts to public schools. Repeal the voucher system for private/charter schools that detract from district funding.
Implement term limits for state senators and state representatives serving in Harrisburg.

Ensure that citizens in every PA municipality have the right to place referenda on the ballot via petitions collecting voter signatures, which would be enacted if approved by voters, thus putting more power and decision making in the hands of the people.
