HARRISBURG (AP) — Republican state lawmakers in Pennsylvania say they want to give parents more power to let their children repeat a year of schooling if they feel their child didn’t get the education they needed or missed out on a year of athletics amid shutdowns during the pandemic. Rep. Jesse Topper, a Fulton County Republican, said Monday that his forthcoming legislation applies equally to parents motivated by education or athletics. Companion legislation being introduced by Rep. Mike Reese, a Westmoreland County Republican, would give school districts the power to decide whether fall sports and activities can go on, including whether spectators are permitted.
