Governor Corbett believes Pennsylvania school districts could tap into their reserve funds more deeply instead of cutting programs.

Along the 422 corridor in Philadelphia’s western suburbs, farmland has been sprouting with new homes, shopping centers and pharmaceutical hubs for over a decade. So money has not really been a problem in most of the local school districts, until now.
