I would first like to thank our legislators and governor for the state budget passed in early July. I am looking at the budget through the lens of education. The additional money placed in this year’s budget for this purpose was very much appreciated by school districts throughout the state. For example, Pottstown School District in Montgomery County received $3.9 million well-deserved dollars which have been used to hire much needed school counselors at the elementary, middle school and high school levels.
