PA Senate Candidate Fetterman Looks Like A Swamp Creature

At a glance

  • Pennsylvania Senate hopeful John Fetterman (D) opposes vouchers that let children in failing public school districts attend private and charter schools.
  • But the progressive champion, who lives in one of Pennsylvania’s worst performing school districts, sends his kids to an elite prep school.
  • Fetterman’s embrace of school choice for his own family opens him up to allegations of hypocrisy on several fronts. Fetterman, the lieutenant governor, has made his Republican opponent Mehmet Oz’s wealth a centerpiece of his campaign. He has also called for increased funding for public schools, though by sending his kids to private school he is diverting funds from Woodland Hills under a state funding formula that awards money to districts based on enrollment.
